Less is more when drinking outdoors.

In the heat of a summer day, you’ll feel the effects of alcohol much faster. 

Since alcohol is a diuretic, it dehydrates your body with every drink. Add in sweating—your body’s natural cooling mechanism—and you’re losing water even faster. 

Here’s how to sip safely this summer!

  • If you’re used to enjoying two or three drinks in cooler weather, switch it up in the heat! Why not trade your second cocktail for a mocktail or enjoy an ice-cold glass of water after every alcoholic drink?
  • Enjoy your drinks slowly, rather than “keeping the pace” with others around you
  • Drink on dry land only, and save boating, swimming, or paddleboarding for another day
