If you're feeling a bit ropey after the office Christmas do', it could be worth trying a hair of the dog remedy.

Perhaps the most common of these morning-after-alcohol cocktails is a traditional Bloody Mary made with vodka, tomato juice, hot sauce, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and a stick of celery.

In true Made in Chelsea style, Millie Mackintosh Tweeted a pic of her very flamboyant Bloody Mary on Sunday, which appears to be stuffed with olives, whole cherry tomatoes and lemon wedges.

Experts believe that small amount of alcohol the night after a heavy drinking session will make your body 'temporarily forget' the old alcohol while it copes with the new. Although your hangover won't completely go away, the tomato juice contains lots of vitamins that will give you a little lift.

We must warn you this is a definite Marmite situation - you will either love it or hate it.
