I have since discovered that pickle juice is best combined with your favorite alcohol.
Gin & Tonic, add fresh chopped/mashed dill weed.
Or Vodka & Tonic, add some bread&butter pickle juice.

I thought I was the only one weird enough to drink pickle juice. Tried it once or twice years ago when tripping and i thought it was awesome but I didn't know if it was bad to drink it so I havent since.

It's an old southern folk remedy for cramps also.
As for the hangover - drink lots of plain water instead of that last couple of beers. Or.......just don't quit drinking. :)

Well, vomiting before bed is also good for mitigating hangovers, and drinking pickle juice would definitely facilitate a purge for me... Ugh.
But there's another "solution" (literally), and it's one that is quite likely exponentially-more effective than pickle juice: Pedialyte!
It was recommended to me by some hard-partying college athletes who said their team Physician told them a bottle of it is equivalent to two bags of IV fluids (so is excellent for emergency rehydration in any context, e.g. heat stroke).
Put a bottle on your pillow before going out so you remember to drink it before crashing. If you forget to drink it before you pass out you won't prevent the hangover (or minimize it if you're partying really hard), but if you drink it first-thing after you regain consciousness will greatly reduce its duration.
