Mixing Alcohol and Energy Drinks Fraught With Risks

A combination of caffeine and alcohol in drinks, banned by FDA, may not have a noticeable impact on the 'lack of inhibitions' that drinkers experience after consuming alcohol. But, the level of stimulation increases and worse, the capacity to judge drops.

Study researcher Cecile Marczinski, PhD, an assistant professor of psychology at Northern Kentucky University said, ''Even alcohol alone will make you feel stimulated and happy. Mixing in the energy drink makes that more pronounced. Energy drinks have tons of caffeine in them, more than mixing a soft drink in alcohol.''

In our place, a certain liquor company has been promoting "mixed drinks". An energy drink and their alcoholic drink. Maybe they do not know the risk of mixing these two drinks.
