  • Make sure each group of guests has a designated driver.
  • Collect car keys from arriving guests and never give keys to someone who is intoxicated.
  • Have a responsible bartender.
  • Serve food before serving drinks.
  • Offer alcohol-free drinks.
  • Stop serving alcohol well before the party ends.
  • Call a taxi for guests who have had too much to drink or, if possible, offer for them to stay the night.
