How to have a responsible happy hour

Many bars and restaurants have a happy hour where patrons can stop by to enjoy discounted drinks and food. For many places, happy hour takes place around 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekdays, making it perfect for coworkers to stop by after a hard day at work. The discounted alcoholic drinks may tempt people to drink more than they ordinarily would, but it is vital to remain professional and safe. The police keep a lookout for drunk drivers any time of day, so even if you leave the restaurant at 6 p.m., you may still face a DWI charge.

Do not put yourself in a situation where you face criminal charges for driving while under the influence of alcohol. Two or three alcoholic drinks may be all it takes to put you over the 0.08 percent limit. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways for you to have a safe time. 

Split an appetizer first

Before you order drinks, you should order some food. You will not feel as affected by the alcohol when you have food in your stomach to absorb the liquid. Many places offer discounted appetizers, so you can split some food with friends before you dive into drinks.

Have a designated driver

Even if no one plans on drinking too much, it is still always best to have someone in the group who can drive if necessary. Appoint at least one designated driver before going to the establishment. Do not be afraid to volunteer yourself. You do not have to drink alcohol to have a good time. 

Drink water

As you order your beer or wine, you should also order a glass of water. It would be wise for people to have at least one glass of water for every 12 ounces of beer or five ounces of wine. Water will prevent you from becoming dehydrated, and it will also decrease the chances of getting a hangover.
