New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and with the year’s end falling on a Monday, I know are you crazy kids are staring down the barrel of a 4-day bender. Maybe 5 if you’re looking to rally for some New Year’s Day day drinking. You’re a psycho, but more power to you.
In my younger days, I might have joined you, but once you hit 30, a 4-day bender is as good as a death sentence. Dramatic much? No, I’d seriously die. My kidneys would shut down, my liver would be swollen to the point of no return (I know they say it can grow back, but not this time) and my intestines would start eating themselves from the inside out thanks to the many holes burned into them from countless well tequila shots. I’m not a doctor, but that’s what’s happening inside me after 2 days in a row and you think I can just cowboy up for 4? Not a chance. Wise men know their limitations and for me, it sadly peaks around 2 days in a row at this stage of my life.
Anyways, all these lifestyle blogs and cocktail making YouTube channels are flooding your social media world with cutesy cocktails, champagne Jello shots and dozens of other Instagramable drinks that’ll barely even get you a buzz. Looks cute, but who are you kidding?
You want the fool-proof, no bullshit method to a good time this weekend, follow these 4 simple steps.
