@MsJ2theZ:  Why not do the Ol’ sprite/club soda with a lime in it trick?  Or have a small glass of red wine?

you could say that you’re taking amoxicillin because you had strep throat

@MsJ2theZ:  yeah I don’t really htink people are going to be reading that much into it, or just find a time when noones around to make your drink.  You think people will notice, but I doubt it.

@MsJ2theZ:  Grab a beer early in the evening and dump it out in the bathroom (run the water so nobody hears it.)  Fill it back up with water so it looks like it has beer in it.  Voila!  Fake beer.

P.S. I have worked this up for the long game by complaining about a stomachache or being ill from a previous night of drinking to get out of drinking at events here and there.  The first few times I did it people were suspicious.  Now nobody blinks an eye when I say I’m not in the mood for a drink.

I’d just do sprite or soda with a lime.  Make it when no one is there.

Or the medication excuse is a good idea.

Byob…. Corona and apple juice are the identical color! That’s what I did and fooled a lot of people 😉 hubby drank a couple at home, we filled the bottles with apple juice and packed for any party. We put a small dot on the cap tI remember which was which!

Grape or cranberry juice in a wine bottle…if you have any empty ones around.

@bebero:  This.  Or, you had an infection… I was on Flagyl a few years ago and both the Dr and Pharmacist warned me that if I drank alcohol while taking it, I would projectile vomit like crazy.

We went to a wedding at 8 weeks and did not want anyone to know. So here’s what we did: We both got red wine. DH would drink his and I would look like I was sipping mine. Then DH would subtly change glasses with me so it would look like I had drank some. Worked like a charm and no one had any clue all night (except for the fact that DH was bit drunk too early but he was entertaining!)
