Tips for a Non-Tipsy Party

  • Stay sober. The only way you can act responsibly is to preserve your own judgment.

  • Serve nonalcoholic beer and wine. Or, concoct a special nonalcoholic holiday punch or eggnog.

  • People busy eating won't drink as much. Avoid salty foods, which make people thirsty.
