Living in New Orleans means that I have a consistently decent amount of alcohol in my bloodstream. This also means that nights out are followed by horrendously dehydrated mornings. My friends in Public Health have devised countless strategies for rehydration or hangover prevention and I've almost always reached out for gallons of water, coconut water, and aloe vera juice. Being Asian meant I had plenty of access to the latter because they were in every Asian supermarket. But, since I moved down South every international market is a little hard to get to without a car. I've actually never seen any aloe vera juice in the supermarkets as long as I've been here in New Orleans.
