You wouldn’t have got­ten through the last decade or so with­out it, but over­do­ing the sauce is no­to­ri­ous as a con­trib­u­tor to ev­ery­thing from liver dam­age to heart com­pli­ca­tions. Here we raise a glass to guilt-free tip­pling.

Fri­day Nights

Rather than swap­ping ev­ery sec­ond drink for wa­ter – great in the­ory – the key to lim­it­ing the dam­age could be less about what you put in your glass, but rather the glass it­self. Ac­cord­ing to in­tel from the Univer­sity of Bris­tol, drink­ing from a straight rather than curved glass causes us to slow our drink­ing speed, re­duc­ing over­all in­take and giv­ing the body a head­start in metabolis­ing all that booze.

Satur­day Morn­ings

A Satur­day hang­over may be tra­di­tion, but there’s no rea­son you should suf­fer un­nec­es­sar­ily. Jit­tery Sin­ga­porean re­searchers dis­cov­ered a dou­ble dose of cof­fee the morn­ing af­ter the party be­fore not only blows the cob­webs away but re­duces your risk of death from liver cir­rho­sis by 66 per cent. Con­fine your caf­feine habit to week­ends for an espresso ticket to re­claim­ing your morn­ings.
