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.
Stop serving alcohol an hour before the party ends to give guests time to sober up.
Do whatever is necessary to keep guests from driving drunk. Take away their keys. Make cab service available. Offer them a couch on which to sleep.
