1. Snacks & Olive Oil: It is only natural to save up your appetite for later, in anticipation of 1. Being in a bikini all-day and 2. Devouring the, oh so yummy BBQ classics. However, most of the time, we go straight for the bar, before the buffet, which in turn only leads to one thing à TGG (aka- Tipsy Greenwich Girl). So how do we avoid this you wonder? Well first, you can choose to eat a few small snacks throughout the day, ladies, I promise, you’ll still be rockin that bikini. Second, throw back a tablespoon of olive oil. The olive oil is said to “coat” your stomach and furthermore sustain your alcohol intake more effectively. So take out your silverware and grab an extra a big bottle of olive oil, because it will be your new best friend.
2. Stay Hydrated: Drink water, and LOTS of it. It’s important to stay hydrated. When planning to drink, it’s imperative to not only drink your daily 8 glasses of H2O, but to also have a glass of water with each drink. Keeping a glass of water by your side will have you feeling fresh and will help to slow down the pace of your drinking.
3. Be Consistent: Stick to the same drink. It can be tempting to switch over from one drink to the next, but this is just a recipe for a major hangover. As they say, beer before liquor, never been sicker, liquor before beer you’re in the clear. So pick your poison. GG likes to stay in the clear by sticking to the same drink, while still satisfying that craving for variety. SpikedSeltzer’s are all the rage for good reason, with an assortment of 4 flavors, there is no need to feel deprived of a lack of variation. Plus, the bubbly compound will have you sipping slowly to help you maintain a slow and steady pace.
