It's been since college days...but I recall that anything sweet was pretty bad....most cocktails can have lots of sugar.

Beer hangovers seemed to be easier than whiskey, at least back then.

Nowadays, since I rarely have more than a couple beers, or glasses of wine, at a time, hangovers just don't happen....maybe I'm getting old.

check that, I KNOW I'm getting old.

      The science of hangovers is rather complicated, but two things affect the severity of them the most.
      The first are congeners, a chemical produced in fermentation. They are basically impurities in the product.  Red wine and darker alcohol contain more of them, and the more you drink, the worse the hangover.  That's why aged and filtered alcohol gives you less of a hangover.  The other hangover enhancer is sugar.  The more sugar the worse the hangover.  For example, cheap fortified wines, sugary alcohol and sugary mixed drinks.  For the less of a hangover, drink high quality alcohol, straight up.

        Not being an expert on many of the alcoholic beverages mentioned, I can only report my experiences over the years.

        1. Sweet Booze- Sloe Gin for one. Then comes Flavored Schnapps, especially the Root Beer and Peppermint and Red Hot Cinnamon versions...The worst of them being served in a LONG SEQUENCE of "Shooters". The hangover intensity would double if you mixed the flavors of the Schnapps Shooters....doing  say  6 of the Root Beer, then 6 of the Cinnamon could really bring one on!

        2. Heavy sweet wines- The worst one in my experience is/was Cold Duck ! Straight from the chilled bottle it has a 100% success record for producing terrible hangovers with me.

              I have to ask, what's  Problast? Also, Thunderbird? Wild Irish Rose?  Do they still make those? I'm even older than I thought!
