You have to think of the people you will be grabbing your drinks with. If your squad - friends, are the go hard kind of friends, you can easily find yourself calling an Uber home after seven cocktails and a couple random numbers written on your arm. Therefore, think of your squad. If your squad is the type that enjoys relaxing conversation and one or two glasses, then you'll be seeing a much more budget friendly bill. Either way, it is up to you to have self-awareness and call it quits when you need to.
If you are going to a five-star bar in the prime areas of Manhattan or Beverly Hills, you can easily expect a heavy bill for your drink menu. Therefore, it is good to know the bar, restaurant, club, or drink venue you will be going to. Get to know the menu and create a better plan a head of time for what your desired drink will be.
Yes, get to know your taste buds. What are you craving this evening? You can expect that craving a gold-topped peach cocktail will be slightly more expensive than a delicious sweet red wine. Therefore, have an idea in mind before you see the menu of exactly what you desire and test out the pricing range. Also, do not give in to temptation unless you know you want to go out of your budget. When you are enjoying a delicious drink, after a couple, all worries go out the window and you want to order that one special drink with a diamond in the middle that cost $16,000. Make sure you think about it first!
A delicious, fun, enjoyable night with friends does not have to reach out of your budget. Hey, it’s simple! Know where to go, what you are ordering, and make sure you enjoy who you are ordering it with. One of your best acquaintances when it comes to staying under budget at the bar is letting the bartender know or your friends. Set a limit and stick to it!
