With spring in full force and summer just around the corner, day drinking’s sure to be part of your weekend plans. No matter what you’re planning or where you’ll be spending the weekends, with good weather forecasted you are sure to be drinking in the sun. Day drinking isn’t nothing like night drinking, it takes stamina, focus and lots of spirits (pun intended.) That’s why we’ve created some PLT rules to day drinking like a pro so you can make it all day.
1. Eat good, feel good.
Since eating is part of survival as a human being, it had to be our number 1 prepping rule for a day sesh. Not only does having food in your stomach help prevent that dreaded hangover, but it slows the absorption of booze, meaning you can make it through the next round of drinks and maybe even make it out.
2. Don’t hate, Hydrate.
If you don’t want to be slurring your words by 3pm, have a glass of H2O for every alcoholic beverage. Water is actually the day drinker’s best friend, it helps you stay on your feet and keeps the level of intoxication manageable. So, you can make it to your night plans and maybe actually remember it.
3. Selfie the day away.
Taking drunken selfies is all part of going out, each one is unique in the way that it will embarrass you in the morning. To keep beer fear to a minimum we strongly advise taking pictures earlier on in the day, when all your aesthetics are on point and you don’t have them crazy drunken eyes.
4. Shots. Shots. Shots. Everybody?
Say no to shots. These tiny booze filled cups are usually to blame for the bruises, texts to your ex and embarrassing stories; so it’s best to just stay away from them. If someone has bought a round and you don’t want to look rude, make it your first and last. Then chase it with a glass of water just to be on the safe side.
5. Dress code.
Whether you’re planning a casual local sesh or going all out for happy hour, we are all in desperate need of that cute outfit that can take you from day to night. First things first, find out what vibe your friends are feeling for day drinks then plan it around that. If no one can decide on a plan go with the trusty jeans and a nice top combo.
