If you're still at that point where you have a curfew and you have to sneak past your parents, just don't drink. Lmfao.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but here we go:
Alcohol metabolizes at a constant rate.
It's one drink per hour. Now there's a lot more that goes into that. You won't be drunk off of one drink. But you aren't just doing one drink, are you? Probably not. So let's go through a scenario.
You go to the party at 7PM. You start out by downing 4 shots of 70 proof liquor in the first 15 minutes. An hour later, you down 4 more. You're 8 drinks deep now in 2 hours. Your BAC will be at or near 0.08 at this point; you'll be showing signs of intoxication. Suppose you can stop at this point. It'll take 8 hours, roughly, for you to be totally sober at this point. But let's say you don't. You push the envelope and do 5 more shots on a dare an hour later, and 5 more before you go. You're now going to be around 0.14; your speech will be slurred, you'll probably stagger a little. You'll show clear impairment.
The best thing to do is not drink, especially when you're underage. But if you do choose to do it, do it like a responsible adult would. 1 drink per hour.
