I have to agree about the vodka. I don't advocate getting drunk. A nice afternoon on the balcony with the radio, the sun, a few crosswords and 2 or 3 drinks is more enjoyable than getting drunk. I never go past four drinks these days.
Beer is the safest as long as it is not a dark beer like Guinness. Conventional wisdom is that red wine produces a worse headache. I find I sleep better after drinking wine but wake up earlier. Beer gives me a buzz. White wine doesn't appeal to me; I use it for cooking and as a basis for making wine coolers and punches. Red wine, champagne and blush wine are more up my alley.
If you must get drunk, stick to beer. Do not mix and stay away from sugary drinks. Whisky and rum are better than vodka. Drink water before you go to bed, about a liter. Go to bed shortly after midnight so that you can get enough early morning sleep. Coffee, Alka-Seltzer and brown dry toast get me through. Stay away from sunlight and use sunglasses. Do not eat any dairy or meat that day if it is bad, but sometimes a greasy, salty meal like fried chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits covered in butter and a large soda does the trick. You lose a lot of salt and potassium.
