Day drinking is fun. Especially on a beautiful Saturday when it’s eighty degrees outside and you’re surrounded by friends & the beach. Unfortunately, it also can make you overeat, become extremely dehydrated, & often times is accompanied by a late night pounding headache. Here are some of my tips that I swear by when I am downing afternoon bubbly:

Day Drinking 101:

+ For every cocktail, drink a glass of water [ << this one’s important ].

+ Eat protein while drinking¬†[ Saturday’s choice? Spinach, mushroom & zucchini egg omelette w/ fruit ].

+ Try not to mix…too much [ I mixed champagne + one spicy Bloody Mary ].

+ Carry snacks [ ideas: 100 calorie packs, dried fruit, & nuts ].

+ Do not party into the night [ if this happens, at least change clothes & brush your hair ].

+ Don’t overdrink, no one likes a sloppy drunk.

+ Use water, instead of bloating soda water for mixed drinks [ ex. vodka & water w/ a lemon ].

+ Order appetizers, not meals.

Lastly, if you’re going to choose to drink, at least eat right. Balance it out. There’s absolutely no reason to mack down a medium pizza & fries.

P.S. The winner to the goodie bag & Starbucks card giveaway is: Blair Allen [ picked by Random.org ]. Congrats!

    Love these tips! I also find guzzling water and coconut water before bed makes me feel a hundred times better the next day and alleviate dehydration.
    That mojito looks delish, my brother just moved to San Diego I’ll have to check out Poseidon next time I’m out there.
