Would you believe that the older the man, the larger his ability to consume alcohol? It’s true! As men age, their capacity for drinking increases. It has been shown that seniors events require more alcohol than a party of freshmen, and that the seniors are still “campaigning” long after their freshmen counterparts have fallen asleep under the table. I have seen this in action a number of times, as I love doing events at seniors centres. Plus, my grandfather, who was in the navy, loved rum, and he would sneak another dram, and another, and another long after my Christmas wine had me dozing on the couch. Keep this in mind when deciding how much and what beverages to serve at your party – the age of the drinker can affect their tolerance!
