How to be a Perfect Host or Hostess
- Have plenty of non-alcoholic drinks available.
- Don't encourage or force guests to drink alcohol.
- Provide plenty of food so guests won't drink on an empty stomach.
- Remember to designate before you celebrate. Arrange a designated driver for those who are drinking alcohol.
- Never serve alcohol to people under 21.
- If preparing an alcoholic punch, use a non-carbonated base such as fruit juice. Alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream faster when it has a carbonated base.
- Close your bar 90 minutes before your party is over and serve a great dessert treat and coffee, tea or soft drinks.
- Be honest. When inviting guests who are known to drink to excess, tell them that drinking and driving is unacceptable at your party. Get their agreement to find alternate modes of transportation.
- Activities and entertainment should be scheduled to keep the focus on celebrating a special occasion not drinking. Singing along with musical accompaniment, party games and board games for all ages are socially acceptable and fun!
- Companies holding office parties should consider arranging for discounted or complimentary rooms when a party is held at a hotel so employees won't drive home impaired.
- If you are planning a holiday party, be wise and plan alternative non-alcoholic beverage choices. There's a good chance that many of your guests will not want to consume alcohol.
If some of your guests have had too much to drink:
- Drive them home
- Arrange a ride with another guest who is sober
- Call a taxi, or Ask them to stay.
