Can These Magic Drops Stop Your Wine Headaches?
Offering to help you "drop the wine headache," the drops supposedly make red, white, and rosé a more enjoyable experience with just a drop in the glass.
As the late comedian Mitch Hedberg once said, the first and the middle part of drinking wine is incredible — it's just the headache at the end that'll get you.
While most wine aficionados have either learned to scale back their consumption or else accept the inevitable outcome of a dionysian drinking binge, it turns out there might just be a way to sidestep your wine hangover with just a few magical drops.
At least that's the theory behind Drop It Wine Drops, which you can snag for as little as $15 on Amazon. Offering to help you "drop the wine headache," the drops supposedly make red, white, and rosé a more enjoyable experience with just a drop in the glass.
How's this supposed miracle cure work? It specifically targets the Tannins in wine, those organic compounds you'd find inside the seeds, skin, and stems of grapes. While normally a decent source of antioxidants, tannins can be a significant factor causing wine headaches (with sugar being another major culprit). By dabbing a drop into a fresh glass of wine and swirling for 20 seconds, even the most tannin-laden Cabernet Sauvignon will suddenly become something you can enjoy with a clear head once again.
Probably one of the best things about them is the fact that each bottle is just 10 milliliters, making them a portable option for purifying your potent potable. They're also rather discreet, so you don't need to worry about someone getting thrown off by you bringing a wine wand with you to the bar in order to purify your glass.
Based on the more than 2,800 five-star reviews on Amazon, it's a pretty good bet that spending $14.99 on a bottle (which can remove tannins from up to 55 glasses of wine) is worth it if it can put an end to headaches. Now that's something worth drinking to.
