ELLE (Canada) - - Style -

As an avid cock­tail con­sumer turned ab­stainer ( j’at­tends un bébé), I have a hol­i­day-eti­quette bulletin: If you find that one of your guests doesn’t/can’t drink, just smile, ask what you can get her, say “Cheers!” when you hand her a Per­rier and re­sume your con­ver­sa­tion. Pep­per­ing partiers with ques­tions about why (re­hab? new diet? found God?) is more painful than a hang­over, and there’s no prize for get­ting to the bot­tom of the boozy rid­dle. After all, your role for the evening is gra­cious host, not eggnog de­tec­tive. KATHRYN HUD­SON

The hol­i­days are almost here! Don’t panic. We’ve got you.
