Another method that really works for when someone else has hiccups is to have them stand in front of you, presentation style, and demand they hiccup for you. The stage fright usually overcomes the hiccups.

I just remembered another remedy that works. Put bitters on a lime, and bite into the lime, tequila style. It was my Grandma's remedy and it worked everytime. Problem is, who keeps bitters on hand in the pantry? Not me...

Bitters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And bitter doesn't even begin to describe it!
There's a scientific reason for why "bitters on a lime works" for curing hiccups. Since Angel posted this thread I had to go read eveything about hiccups and it seems my grandma had the right idea.
(Thanks for that, Angel, LOL)
