Need To Sober Up!? You Could Have Had a V-8


If you’re trying to sober someone up, never mind getting a big cup of coffee.  That doesn’t even work in sitcoms.  Researchers are saying that blood alcohol levels dropped 3 times lower and drunk people sobered up 50 minutes sooner when drinking tomato juice than with just water.  And getting a drunk to drink tomato juice should be just as easy as getting them to not throw it back up.
