How do you drink socially and not get drunk?
What is considered an occasional drinker?
Does drinking water sober you up?
Meetup with childhood friends at your hometown's local bar
That bar you were too young to drink at growing up? Yeah, you're old enough now. You won't even get carded, sorry bud. Gather around the adult hang out spot, now that you're all officially adults yourself. Talk about old times, the present, and the future as you think to yourself, "Man. Was high school really that long ago?"
Invite people over and make your own mixed drinks
Not going to your hometown for the holidays? No worries, because home is where the heart is. And your heart is currently in your kitchen as you make homemade mixed drinks for your friends. Show off your bartending skills and experiment with whatever is in your fridge. Somehow, last minute fridge treasure hunt drinks are always the best drinks.
Dust off your favorite drinking games
Let's be honest, we haven't gone this crazy since college, so make sure you have a few bottles of water on standby to keep your wits about you. Everyone enjoys a social drinking game, even the one friend who doesn't drink but has a cup of soda to play along.
Why We Love DrinksGiving
It's a chance to catch up
It's probably been a year or two since we've last seen our childhood friends. Life gets in the way and adulting takes up all of our time. Not to mention the cost of travel — this is the time to catch up in person, share our respective tales of responsibility, and recollect on childhood shenanigans.
We get a moment with our friends before a full day with our families
Sure, we love our families. But sometimes we need a moment to breathe and decompress before we spend an entire day with a large amount of them at a time. And who better to commiserate with than the friends who grew up with us?
It's another day to celebrate
We can never get enough holiday cheer, especially when there's a day specifically meant for us to have fun with our friends. Get out there and embrace the holiday spirit!
