Parties are incomplete without alcohol. But drinking makes your vision blurred and clouds your judgement. You don’t need to risk driving under the influence of alcohol, and no, you absolutely don’t need to give up drinking or partying for it. There are other ways to go about it. Here are some good tips on how you can juggle and not end up in trouble:
Go to Party Destinations
Throwing a party at a beach or a resort with a transport service is a good idea if you don’t want to drive after the party. With the driving taken care of, you can travel with friends to and fro, enjoy the party, and not have to drive yourself back home. You could also book rooms and stay the night over in case you don’t want to travel back drunk.
Party at your Pad
If you’re throwing a party, you can do it from the comfort of your own house. That’ll also mean that you can drink freely and not have to worry about driving back home.
You could also go for a party at someone else’s place if it’s a sleepover, and drive back the next day. If you’re prone to hangovers though, it may cloud your judgement, so it’s better if you drink enough water the night before.
Consider throwing parties with themes that may interest everyone, like a Superhero Costume Party.
Serve Spiked Desserts
Give your guests a surprise. Serve some delicious spiked desserts at your party, like Tiramisu or Rum Jelly. What’s better than having alcohol hidden in sweet treats? The alcohol content in these desserts is in very manageable quantities but adds an interesting flavour to the dessert and lets you drive back sober.
Hit a Club
The good thing about clubs is that you may not have to drive there yourself as some clubs provide a cab service. Find out if the one you’re going to does. You could also just find out the closing time of the club you’re planning to go to and arrange for a prepaid cab to pick you up after you’re done.
Drink light and know how long it will take for you to be completely sober and able to drive. Make sure you drink enough water and eat a lot of food while taking in alcohol so that there are fewer chances of getting drunk.
Accompany Someone Who Won’t Drink
Go to the party with a friend who doesn’t drink or isn’t going to drink, and can drive. Make sure the friend waits for you, leaves with you, and drops you home. You might owe your friend a lot for this one.
