My grandmother taught me a very simple cure for hiccups. I thought it was common knowledge, but the existence of a product called Hiccups Away at $3 a pop makes me think that it's not. I'm also not a fan of the "scare" technique, which doesn't seem too effective.
So, here's what you do. Pour half a small glass of cold water. Add about 2 teaspoons of sugar--enough so it's distinctly sweet but not sickeningly so. Drink the sugar water slowly. See? Hiccups gone. Works every time for me.
