Drinking with friends over Zoom
Up for zoozing sometime this weekend? I just picked up a bottle of wine.
Yeah, LMK what time.
|Social distancing||Isolating from other people|

To zooze means to invite your friends to a Zoom call and share a drink (or several) together. Also known as a Zoom happy hour, zoozing is one of the ways friends and co-workers have managed to continue hanging out with one another, virtually, during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
The word zooze (obviously) is a combination of the words Zoom and booze. Different social groups zooze differently, with some using Zoom simply to continue their previous, in-person meet-ups, while others plan intricate, themed zooze sessions.
