Energy Drinks and Alcohol = Bad Combination
Combining an energy drink with alcohol may make you feel more sober than you actually are, causing you to misgauge how impaired you are to drive. A study found that combining energy drinks and alcohol didn’t make men more drunk but the combination of energy drink and alcohol did make them think they were less impaired than they actually were.
Mixing alcohol with high caffeine drinks can make people think they have better coordination than they do. It also increases the sensation of pleasure, makes people think they are less tired than they are, and reduces sleepiness.
Energy drinks may help those people drinking feel less tipsy, but they are still drunk. One of the dangers of this effect, according to researchers, is that drinkers, especially young ones, may feel free to drink more alcohol than they might otherwise drink.
