Question

Lizzie, Cambridge asked:

Is it true that mixing your drinks makes you more drunk ?

Answer

NO, it's a fallacy ! As the total does of alcohol entering the body is the same no matter how you drink it, in theory it shouldn't make any difference. What does make a difference is whether you drink on an empty stomach or not.
