Turning 21? Chances are you’ll be heading out on the town, legally able to drink from any of the bars for the first time. So what can you do to make sure you have a good night and an even better next day?
Eat Before You Drink
Eat a large meal, specifically one with carbohydrates. Drinking on an empty stomach = bad news.
Alternate Water with Alcohol
If you plan on imbibing more than one drink, alternate with water. This will keep you hydrated and will prevent you from overdoing it by drinking too much alcohol at once.
Wear a Sash!
Everyone in that bar has had a 21st birthday, and a lot of them would love to help make yours awesome. Wear a 21st birthday sash, and you WILL get free drinks. We have a few 21st birthday sashes for you to choose from!
Have a Designated Driver
Whether it’s a friend, taxi, or limo, make sure you have a designated driver. You’ll want a safe and reliable ride.
Try New Things
Ask your friends to get you one of their favorite drinks, so you can try a type of alcohol you may not have had before. Stumped on what to order? Ask the bartender for their favorite!
Have a “Handler”
Get someone who cares for you greatly to be your handler for the day. They’ll be there if you aren’t feeling well, and they’ll be the ones to take the drink from you if you insist on keep drinking past your threshold. Being a handler is tough work, but you’ll want it. They’re particularly handy in keeping an eye on your stuff and making sure you get home safe and sound! If you do have a handler, you may want to find a nice way to thank them after your birthday party. Buy them dinner or a nice treat!
