A greasy fry-up? A blacker than black coffee? Cold pizza in bed? More booze? We’ve all got our personal hangover cures, but a clinic in Australia reckons it can topple your morning-after nightmare in just half an hour.

The Hangover Clinic in Sydney, the first of its kind in the country, claims to have created the ultimate hangover-slaying cocktail by combining a mix of vitamins and hooking you up to IV drips.

Predictably, this hangover Holy Grail doesn’t come cheap. Prices start at $140 (about £67.50) with a special $200 package for a full hour, complete with oxygen therapy and two litres of hydration drip. There’s also a VIP lounge for those who fancy suffering alongside their booze-addled pals.

"We've had a lot of people saying, 'I can't drink like I used to. I can't recover like I used to,'" says the Hangover Clinic's founder Max Petro, pictured above and modelling his feelgood contraption.

However, this isn’t the first time we’ve come across these insta-cures for your beer-addled brain. In party town Las Vegas, these hangover clinics have been treating alco-patients for years. Check out the advert for one such service, on wheels, here
