Remember that bar in your hometown that you had a bad night at and you said you would never go back? Well, it’s that time of year again and Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest night out of the year. Everyone is home for the holiday, and you’re bound to run into some high school friends and some high school foes. You tell yourself you won’t go out, but you know you will.
Use this time to reconnect with old friends and reminisce about the old days. Have fun recreating a pregame in your parent’s basement. You basically have no excuse not to go out! Friends and connections are just as important as family.
Your drink selection may be limited in your hometown, but here are some go-to options for low-calorie drinks so you can save room for your Thanksgiving feast on Thursday.
6 Low Calorie Drinks for When You Go Out on Thanksgiving Eve
1. Light beer, or craft beer if you only have a couple.
2. A glass of wine.
3. Rum and diet coke.
4. Scotch or Tequila on the rocks. Classy right?
5. Vodka soda with lemon or lime.
6. My new favorite drink is spiked seltzers. Some brands that have become popular are SpikedSeltzer and Truly Spiked & Sparkling. I swear they’re delicious! And if you’re pregaming like the old days, you may want to choose a bright liquor and some flavored seltzers as a mixer.
Take Thanksgiving Eve as an opportunity to see how far you’ve come and make some new connections with past acquaintances that may come in handy in the future. You never know! Plus I know you want to see the ex-football players, the guy that lost weight, your newly married prom date, and all the other characters from the old days!
