Everyone likes to share good news and good times with friends. But when an occasion calls for a party, it also calls for a responsible host. In planning your party, you could consider having a party where no alcohol is served; if you do decide to serve alcohol, here are a few tips to ensure guests have a good time and get home safely.
The only thing that can sober up an intoxicated person is time. Black coffee, fresh air, exercise, or a cold shower won't do the job. Entertainment is an art and a responsibility. Your duties as host extend to being aware of the alcohol consumption of your guests. In so doing, you will make sure that everyone has a great time from beginning to end.
Under normal circumstances, the body can safely handle about one standard drink per hour. However, your size, how fast you drink, what you've eaten, how you feel, and whether you are a woman or a man affect how alcohol affects you.
A 5-oz. glass of wine, 12-oz. bottle of regular (5%) beer, and a regular 11/2-oz. serving of hard liquor have the same alcohol content. No matter which you drink, it's all the same to your body.
