Welcome to New Year’s Eve Weekend, 4 nights where we can all let loose and still have a day to recover. I thought we should take a moment to cover the basics for survival of all the drinking to ensue.
First, an article on mixing great drinks at home, not only will this help stretch your drinking budget, but using fresh mixers and premium spirits will help to ease that New Year’s Day Hangover. Don’t know how much liquor to buy for your party? We’ve assembled an easy to follow cocktail party check list just for you. As for drink recipes we’ve got tons, you all know that, we suggest picking 3 or 4 to make. Maybe a Martini or two? Don’t forget the appetizers.
What’s next? Where to go? And what to do? For that, we like Yelp. Real reviews from real people, so take them with a grain of salt. Once you are out, remember to drink responsibly, it is bad form to be out of control drunk, and not classy either. We have a few tools to help you gauge your consumption, like this breath alcohol calculator and this blood alcohol chart. Print it our and take it with you. Use these as tools to as a reality check while drinking. If you plan to drink anything, just don’t drive.
What about the New Year’s Day?
Hangover Helpers come in all varieties, some you wouldn’t imagine. We haven’t tried them all, so be careful and remember the best hangover cure is to not over do it. Champagne Cocktails are great for the left over Champagne, we discuss in this recent post.
Remember to be safe out there, stay alert, and have fun!
