    Those clever North Koreans say they have invented a hangover-free alcohol that is highly appreciated by experts and lovers.

    The drink, Koryo Liquor, apparently derives from Kaesong Koryo insam - a natural herb thought to have medicinal properties. According to the Pyongyang Times, replacing sugar with the scorched, glutinous rice removed the bitterness from the insam and, crucially, the hangover.

    Who fancies a pint of it?

    You don't have to, but it would be best to see what it tastes like before investing in two. Unless you already know what Kaesong Koryo insam tastes like. The Pyongyang Times, state newspaper says the "suave" liquor boasts 30%-40% alcohol, so a pint ought to be enough to satisfy even the most stressed teacher.
