Diet Soda + Booze = Drunker
A new study out of Northern Kentucky University reports that "alcohol, consumed with a diet mixer, results in higher (BrAC) Breath Alcohol Concentrations as compared to the same amount of alcohol consumed with a sugar-sweetened mixer."
A timely discovery in this Obama economy: you can get drunk for less money if you mix your drinks with a non-sugar mixer.
The danger here is that, by choosing a diet mixer, you don't feel any more drunk than you would have with a normal drink, but - believe it or not - you actually are.
So there's that. Cheers!
