The phrase “hair of the dog” just got taken to the next level.

Launched at the beginning of October, Australia-based Vitamin Vodka is a new spirit that claims it to be your new “anti-hangover” medicine. We know what you’re thinking: Hello? Isn’t all vodka a hangover cure?

We are right there with you. That’s why Bloody Marys and screwdrivers were invented. It’s important to note, however, that based on our experience, this is merely a delay tactic that leads to the dreaded double hangover, which unfortunately also generally coincides with Monday.

That’s where this vodka comes in (or so it says). According to the company’s website, their booze is “infused with vitamins to refresh and revitalize,” which “assists in the prevention of the dreaded hangover.”

What exactly are these vitamins? “Vitamins B, C, and K are used in Vitamin Vodka,” the company’s European business manager Bradley Mitton told Vice. “The B and C vitamins assist with hydration, as it’s primarily dehydration that creates a hangover. You consume the equivalent of one multivitamin in every four shots.”

But before you start planning to incorporate four shots of vodka into your nightly bedtime routine, we have some sad news: It’s only available in central Europe, and it costs €1,450 — which is equivalent to over $1,600.

Pass the Advil.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
