Alcohol isn't meant to be consumed by a decent Indian girl. But, since society is letting you do it, you might as well conform to how 'they' want you to drink, right? 

1. First of all, drink only when there is ‘a man’ around to take care of you. 

After all he is going to save your dignity when you get drunk.

2. Always let the guy decide what you should drink and let him then order the drink also.

Because respectable girls always seek permission and validation from the men in their lives.

3. Always go for red wine, because that’s ladylike.

4. White wine is also okay. If you don't want to drink wine, drink Rosé.

5. If there are no wines, you must order a pretty looking cocktail, preferably vodka-based. 

Because all girls have a thing for 'girly' drinks only.

6. Definitely don’t ask for beer because you’re a respectable girl, not a tomboy.

via GIPHY

7. And if you do order a beer, definitely do not chug because that’s not very ladylike, either.

via GIPHY

8. Whatever you do, don’t order a whiskey because you’re not a man.

via GIPHY

9. Never drink straight from the bottle because respectable girls don’t have bad manners. 

via GIPHY

10. Don’t drink more than 2 drinks. 

Because respectable girls can’t handle more than that, by default.

11. Don’t drink along with a group of men because who knows what they will think. 

via GIPHY

12. Don’t down your drink in one shot, either because that’s not what respectable girls do. 

via GIPHY

13. Don’t have conversations about what alcohol you like. 

Because respectable girls are not supposed to like alcohol anyway. 

via GIPHY

14. Don’t drink around elders because that makes you very ‘unsanskaari’.

What will your uncles and aunties think?

15. Don’t drink if you have kids. 

Because what kind of an example are you setting for your kids? 

via GIPHY

16. Don’t drink if your husband or BF is not drinking. 

Because respectable girls always put their better half before themselves. 

via GIPHY

17. Don’t drink if you want to go from side chick to main girl. 

via GIPHY

18. Don’t drink if you want to impress his family.

via GIPHY

19. Don’t smoke while drinking.

via GIPHY

20. Smoke up? Hush! Good girls shouldn't say such things.

via GIPHY

21. Don’t drink alone at a bar because then, you’re just ‘asking for it’.

via GIPHY

22. Don’t drink if you want to be taken seriously by a boy. 

via GIPHY

23. Don’t drink if you want him to think you’re ‘not available’. 

via GIPHY

24. Don’t drink if you don’t want to be taken advantage of.

via GIPHY

25. Don’t drink. Ever.

Here's to being sanskaari!
