OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ AAA Oklahoma is offering some advice for those who'll be hosting parties during the holidays.

AAA's ``ABC's of Partygiving'' include serving a wide variety of drinks, including non-alcoholic beverages such as ``mocktails.''

Have plenty of protein rich and starch foods to help absorb the alcohol.

Minimize salt.

And encourage designated drivers, give a small gift to designated drivers and don't hesitate to call a cab for anyone who's had too much to drink.

AAA says about 30 percent of all auto crashes in Oklahoma are alcohol-related.
