Host Some Endless Jam Sessions
Whenever you’re out and about with your friends and you’re planning to drink some liquor, something fun and exciting should be your main agenda. A good idea would be to host a jamming session with your barkada.
All you got to do is bring out your guitar and strum away your favorite tunes. If you want to take it up a notch, then turn the jam session into an all-out karaoke night, where everyone is free to sing – regardless, whether they are a good singer or not!
Play ‘Never Have I Ever’
This game has seen its fair share of confessions, both in embarrassing and raunchy terms. Playing this game can definitely uncover your friends’ different, darkest secrets. Just be sure that when playing this game, everyone follows the rules and no one gets hurt or offended.
If you feel like you are going into a dangerous territory on this one, then feel free to play other drinking games.
Play Other Drinking Games
Since ‘never have I ever’ has been mentioned, it’s about time to suggest this tip for all of your liquor-filled nights. There is an endless array of drinking games you and your friends can play. Games such as “Take a shot when,” “Suck and Blow,” “Drink or Dare,” and others of the sort can surely spell a well-spent night for everyone in your group.
Again, like with anything else having to do with alcohol, proper moderation in drinking will definitely ensure maximum enjoyment for the night ahead!
Bring A LOT of Beer
When it comes to Philippine liquor and barkada nights, beer should never be left out of the conversation; even more so, in your night out menu, especially since this drink could easily heighten up the atmosphere in your table of friends.
Handling this tip is easy enough – just make sure to bring a lot of beer! And by a lot, we mean A LOT. That way, you have enough to go around.
Explore Other Alcoholic Varieties
Aside from beer, the Philippines offer various liquors for you and your group of friends to choose from. In fact, there is so much variety out there you could include in your menu, such as gin, vodka, tequila, whiskey, among others. You don’t have to limit your taste buds to one single drink!
In your next barkada night, don’t hesitate to try out other alcoholic beverages. Who knows? You guys might find your next favorite concoction.
Take a Walk…or Swim
If ever you’re feeling a bit tipsy from all the liquor, why not take a walk with your friends? Or better yet, go for a swim (particularly if you guys are lounging around a pool area). Doing these activities will surely sober you enough to enjoy another round of good fun at your table.
Put Your Camera to Use
Of course, when one mentions a get-together with friends – especially when there’s alcohol involved – your barkada is bound to take pictures for the memories. Instead of making phones off-limits to your “drinking table,” encourage them to take as many pictures as they can to their heart’s content. Once they’re uploaded, you’d be surprised and amused at how much your friends have done, or maybe even you yourself. It’s sure to be a barrage of laughter all the way.
Play the Best Movies You Have
For this step, this can be done even with or without alcohol. All you and your friends need to do for this to work is to gather around someone’s house and pick out the best movies from selection. Then, once you have something playing on the screen, just sit back, relax, and enjoy cinematic goodness.
In the Philippines, liquor is enough reason for you and your friends to gather around. With the tips listed above, for sure, your next barkada night will not only be fun, but also interesting!
