  • 1 egg yolk
  • pinch of chilli powder
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 30 ml sweet marsala

Tips and Suggestions

This is the concoction my mum used to make when she saw I needed revitalizing, and it was my first encounter with a hangover cure. I remember the sensation of many layers of flavours, ranging from the sweetness of the marsala, sharpness of lemon juice, the spice of chilli, and the egg that binds it together.

Raw or lightly cooked eggs should not be served to young children, elderly people, invalids and pregnant women, because of the risk of salmonella poisoning.


1. Separate the yolk from the egg white and discard the white.

2. Place the yolk, without breaking it, in a small glass.

3. Add the ground chilli, the lemon juice, and then the Marsala. Don't stir it. Drink it down in one gulp!
