Mixing Alcohol – why does it suck so bad?
In today’s NJroute22.com VLOG – we chat about the old saying that “mixing alcohol” is not a good idea.
And based on recent experiences – we agree.
But we have no idea why! Not sure if even matters.
The other day we didn’t over-consume to any real degree.
But, we did have FIVE different kinds of alcohol. Almost the whole spectrum.
A couple of beers, some spiked seltzers, a shot of vodka, and some white AND red wine.
And boy oh boy did we feel like hell the next day.
Seriously – why would mixing alcohol types like that matter – if the total alcohol consumed was about the same as usual?
Don’t all alcohols essentially have the same negative effect?
We’re not sure – but we know that different boozes “feel” different to us.
- Beers are usually happy to start.
- Wines are okay as well, fairly mellow – but just with bad hangovers. White wine being worse than red.
- Spiked seltzers are our most tolerated.
- And hard liquor can knock you out – as well as make your tempers worse.
Heck, I don’t even know why different kinds of booze alter our personalities in different ways either.
But whatever the case is or was – mixing is a terrible idea.
Stick with one kind per night!
