Red, White, and Boom: How to Ease Your Summer Party Hangover

As summer activities start to get back to normal, there’s no shame in wanting to let loose and have a blast this Fourth of July. Pun intended.

Barbecuing with friends and family on a hot summer day while anticipating a spectacular fireworks show at night is reason enough to kick back a few refreshing adult beverages. But before you have a little too much fun, it’s important to be prepared so that you don’t feel like fireworks are still going off in your head the next morning.

Here are some friendly tips to ease those Fourth of July and summer party hangovers:

1. Drink plenty of water.

You’ve heard this easy tip time and again, but it’s even more important to consider during the hot summer months. The scorching heat alone is enough to dehydrate anyone, so if you do plan to day-drink in the sunshine, make sure to chug some refreshing water in between all the

2. Fill up on enough food.

Not to be the nagging friend here, but in order to help avoid over intoxication—and a resulting hangover—it’s a basic rule of thumb to avoid drinking on an empty stomach. The great part about Fourth of July cookouts is the smorgasbord of substantial and satisfying foods.

Even if you’re not chowing down on a burger or hot dog, appetizers and finger foods can keep you feeling full. But don’t overdo it—drinking on an overly full stomach won’t make you feel great the next day, either!
