Liquor.com | Four Signs Your Guest Has Had More Than Enough to Drink

Indulgence is synonymous with the holidays, but seasonal celebrations can often lead to excess. “Any time people don’t have to worry about their day-to-day responsibilities, they tend to drink more,” says Frankie Jones, the head bartender at Washington, D.C.’s Occidental Grill & Seafood.

Combine vacation days with shopping, travel and increased time with family and co-workers, and “people start drinking to ease stress, and it’s really easy for them to over-imbibe,” says Lindsey Scheer, the bar manager at Heritage in Richmond.

Jones, Scheer and other bartenders share with us the warning signs that a guest has had too much to drink.
