So you want to go out drinking tonight, huh? Good for you, girl. You do you. Let down your hair, break loose, and just be sure to wear your stretchy pants tomorrow. You’re gonna need the extra give.
Step One: Dinner
Alright, let’s be honest. If you’re planning on spending your night getting absolutely hammered, you’re going to need to put something (or a lot of things) in your stomach. No one likes a lightweight. You know who they hate even more? The girl who pukes at the pregame. So, because you’re not some sort of idiot, you know that you need to concentrate on things that will fill you up and keep you full (until it’s pizza time at 2 a.m., of course).
Food options include:
2 slices of cheese pizza – 700 calories
1 standard burrito – 1,000 calories
1 burger and 1 order of fries – 800 calories
Anywhere from 700 – 1,000 calories
Step Two: The Getting Ready Cocktails
Okay, so you ate dinner, went home, took a shower, and sat around naked for approximately one hour. Now it’s finally time to actually start getting ready. But obviously, you can’t properly blow dry your hair or apply winged eyeliner while 100 percent sober. No, sober activities are for losers, and you, my dear, are no such loser.
Warm-up cocktail options include:
3 glasses of wine – 330 calories
3 light beers – 315 calories
2 strong rum and Diet Cokes – 350 calories
Anywhere from 1,000 to 1,350 calories
Step Three: The Pregame
Hey! You look like a real person now! Good for you. Now that you aren’t ashamed of your appearance, it’s time for you and your roommates to venture on over to that pregame and get good and drunk.
Pregame options include:
4 strong vodka and Crystal Lights – 980 calories
3 shots of Fireball, 1 shot of tequila, 1 glass of orange juice, 1/2 solo cup of Franzia – 770 calories
2 beers, 1 shot of Fireball, 2 rounds of slap the bag – 650 calories
Anywhere from 1,650 to 2,330 calories
Step Four: The Bar
Alright. All that’s left between you and the amazing yumminess of microwave pizza is two or three hours at the bar. Smile, make the guys buy your drinks, and before you know it, you’ll be in your bed with Netflix and food in no time. You got this, girl. You got this.
Bar drink options include:
1 Long Island Iced Tea, 1 shot of Fireball, 1 half-spilled gin and tonic – 530 calories
2 vodka-waters, 1 shot of Fireball, 1 shot of tequila – 505 calories
1 Bud Light, 1 Buttery Nipple shot, 2 vodka-sodas – 595 calories
Anywhere from 2,155 to 2,925 calories
Step Five: Drunk Food
Praise Jesus — the drinking is done. Now it’s time to coat your stomach with literally anything and everything you can get your hands on.
Drunk food options include:
4 pieces of pizza, 1 individual bag of Doritos, 3 Oreos – 1,370 calories
