Diet drinks with liquor, you’ll get sicker…
There are several rules of thumb for mitigating intoxication when consuming alcohol that focus on what alcohol you’re drinking. But new research from Northern Kentucky University reveals that what you mix your alcohol with can also be a significant factor. A comparison of breath alcohol concentrations (BrAC) after consuming a mix of alcohol and either a regular soft drink or an artificially sweetened diet soft drink resulted in higher BrAC in the diet soft drink condition. So in addition to taking into account how much you’ve eaten and whether you have wine before liquor or beer before wine, pay careful attention to the non-alcoholic additions!
