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!
