Tis the season to be merry!!!

We all understand the perils of drink driving. It kills innocent people, the drink driver will lose their licence, they may go to prison, they might lose their job, their car insurance premiums will double and they’ll have it all on their conscience for the rest of their life. All of the above are great reasons to say no to that drink.

It may be a blow to find that it’s your turn to drive, when you were hoping for a pina colada or two, but it happens to us all eventually. You are officially the designated driver.

If you like the odd drink, especially over the party season when it’s almost tradition to attend as many parties as possible and to endure a handful of fruity hangovers, then having to drive can be a pain. There is however a definite stigma attached to the behaviour of drink drivers nowadays, so boozing into the wee hours and then getting behind the wheel is not an option.

While it may not be quite the same, there are a multitude of non alcoholic cocktails that you can mix up at a party or ask for in the bar. If you don’t like the ‘non alcoholic’ taste of non alcohol beer then it may be the path you should take.

The people at Hoot Car Insurance www.hootcarinsurance.co.uk , the home of cheap car insurance for young people on the internet, really know how to get into the party spirit without actually getting stuck into ‘party spirits’. Here’s their round up of the top alcohol free cocktails.
