Drunkenness gets a lot of press. Wild, crazy, stupid drunkenness that is. Relaxing, lazy inebriation is much less written about. And that's surprising, as it's a really lovely state of being. So now you have it, a list for all the mellow drunks, the ones who cherish the pleasant numbing feeling of alcohol slowly traveling through the veins, warming the body, loosening the muscles, inducing a welcome sleepiness of the body and the mind.
What are the most relaxing ways to get drunk? Extensive research turned up a few common themes: 1) Drinking alcohol in or near water is calming and enjoyable. 2) Drinking to cool down or warm up does the body right. 3) Already being sleepy, and drinking liquor to get sleepier, is very nice. 4) Drinking immediately following strenuous physical exertion has a yin and yang kind of balancing effect, as your sporty self moves into the realm of feeling no pain.
But really, who cares?! Analysis takes energy, and that's contrary to the spirit of this list. Don't overthink it. Recall your favorite drunken muscle memories and vote up the most relaxing ways to get drunk (or add any we missed!)
