It's a tradition almost as longstanding as the debate itself -- the drinking game. In honor of watch parties and sports bars turned-temporarily-political across the nation, we give you the official CNN presidential debate drinking game. Instructions are self-explanatory. Pick your favorite beverage (adult or otherwise) and follow along from the pre-show that starts at 7 p.m. ET to the after-party that goes through 12:30 a.m.
Have fun, be careful, and know that here at CNN we'll be raising our water glasses to you.
