People, especially of Asian descent, may experience at some point a weird reaction to alcoholic beverages. You get sudden hot flushes even with just one drink, and hives that may last for a couple of days to weeks. Most call it an allergy to alcohol or alcohol intolerance. This condition is probably an alcoholic’s horrible nightmare, but for you, it may just be a regular part of your reality. With these severe reactions, you try as much as possible not to drink alcohol at parties, preventing yourself from getting those reactions again. However, you may feel left out by your peers or just naturally parched when avoiding alcohol. Listed below are non alcoholic drinks that you can bring to parties instead of alcohol.
If there’s another beverage that everyone is addicted to aside from alcohol, then it is iced coffee. Iced coffee, with the caffeine it contains, can boost the energy of anyone drinking it. You can expect yourself to still be energetic even after hours and hours of partying compared to those already passed out on the floor after a few shots of alcohol. It also has that tasty mix of sweet and bitter that leaves you wanting more of this non-alcoholic drink.

Like the usual soft drinks, the distinctive flavour and texture of this carbonated water can keep you partying all night long. It increases your energy as some sparkling water contains sugar. It can also help you stay refreshed during the whole event as it is mostly composed of water.
Usually, most people think that once you have a unique condition that hinders you from tasting a particular beverage or food, you will be left out or ignored.

If you are allergic to alcohol, you can always try several non-alcoholic beverages that not only give you the same effects as alcohol but also more significant health benefits. So, the next time you’re going out to party, take some non-alcoholic drinks with you to keep you refreshed.
