You’re all sexy and glamorous in your formal dress and Christopher Designs jewelry attending a cocktail party. Liquors are in the air and you’re in the mood to, well, party. Don’t lose that glamor (or heaven forbids, the diamond ring) when you go home, though. Make sure you watch what you drink and how much. Likewise, avoid a head-splitting hangover the next day. Drink lots of water to combat the dehydrating effect of alcohol. Also drink your cocktails “in the rocks.” As the ice melts, it dilutes the alcohol level of your drink. Furthermore, avoid carbonated mixes. Carbonated drinks increase the rate of alcohol absorption. In general, light drinks like champagne and white wine contains less alcohol than darker drinks like red and brandy. Finally, enjoy a long talk. After all, you can’t drink while talking, right?
Christopher Designs is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
