NEW YORK — A new functional beverage that promises to help curb hangovers is hitting the market.
Mercy said its namesake beverage is a 60-calorie drink that's formulated with amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins, which is designed to replenish the body with key nutrients and prevent such hangover symptoms as headaches and nausea from occurring, according to the company.
The drink currently is available online at DrinkMercy.com for a suggested retail price of $11.50 for a four-pack of 8.4-oz. cans. The company noted that it is planning nationwide distribution of the product, with an initial rollout in bars, restaurants and hotels in the Northeast.
