What you need to remember is that drinks that don't have that alcohol taste or burn, but still contain a lot of alcohol are probably the most "dangerous" to someone who doesn't really know the limits of their tolerance. Because you can easily become convinced that either the drinks don't have that much alcohol or that you aren't that affected by it and then decide to drink more. And more. And then it hits you all at once, making you either extremely incoherent or maybe even make you pass out or spend the next 20 minutes emptying your stomach. And the hit comes fast when you are unprepared, so unless you are miraculously at the bathroom at the time, you'll end up making a mess most likely. What I'd suggest is to try a long drink, something with a little alcohol, but at least somewhat sweet in taste. And have a sip of that after you downed a shot, for example. It'll temper the aftertaste a bit, but you can still feel your alcohol intake. Instead of being mislead when you can't.

Eat before you drink. If you think it hasn't kicked in yet and you want more, wait half an hour and see how you feel then. Don't take drinks from strangers. After you've drank a few shots or so and you think you can handle more, don't have more because chances are you can't handle it. With all that being said, you've gotta find your limit at some point, but don't let that point be your first time because it might ruin drinking for you
