I remember reading somewhere about a headcanon with Legolas actually completely holding it in that time he drank with Gimli and felt only a ‘tingly sensation’. So in reality, he was actually drunk as fuck.
Bonus for Thranduil being proud of his son for following his footsteps to Dwarf-owning.
‘Stone-hard are the Dwarves in labour or journey, but this endless chase began to tell on [Gimli], as all hope failed in his heart. Aragorn walked behind him, grim and silent, stooping now and again to scan some print or mark upon the ground. Only Legolas still stepped as lightly as ever, his feet hardly seeming to press the grass, leaving no footprints as he passed; but in the waybread of the Elves he found all the sustenance that he needed, and he could sleep, if sleep it could be called by Men, resting his mind in the strange paths of elvish dreams, even as he walked open-eyed in the light of the world.’
