- EAT: It is only natural to save up your appetite in anticipation of 1. Being in a bikini all-day and 2. Devouring all of the crudite, cheese platter or boat bar classics. That said the truth is that, most of the time, we go straight for the bar, before the buffet (if ever) landing us all in the same boat, well, yacht, literally and figuratively: TGG! (aka Tipsy Greenwich Girl).
So, how do we avoid this not-so-cute look? First, eat a few small snacks throughout the day, and GG’s, I promise, you’ll still be rocking that bikini.
2. EVOO + H20
2a. Then, sounds gross but, throw back a tablespoon of olive oil: is “coats” your stomach and furthermore sustain your alcohol intake more effectively, AND it works. and
2b. Stay Hydrated: Drink water, and LOTS of it, literally the entire time you are on said yacht. It’s important to stay hydrated. And, be sure to also have a glass of water with each drink and to hydrate while you are totally and actively dehydrating in the sun, nonetheless, boozing. 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. Stick to the same drink:
Don’t think you are being some hero or cool cat by mixing the liquors or doing shots here GG’s: you are the only one who loses here. It can be tempting to switch over from one drink to the next, but this is just a recipe for a major hangover, and likely some embarrassing mishap while on the water. Forget the saying: ‘beer before liquor, never been sicker, liquor before beer you’re in the clear’: just pick your ONE poison and stick to it. Don’t even apply the beer and liquor thing, regardless of the saying. GG likes to stay in the clear ALWAYS by sticking to the same drink, while still satisfying that craving for variety with a splash of some sort of mixer. For a calorie free and sugar-free option opt for a dash of Crystal Light powder. Prefer the bubbles? 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. Bonus: the bubbly compound will have you sipping slowly to help you maintain a slow and steady pace.
