Mixing Diet Drinks and Alcohol Has Risks


By Molly Clifton

A new study found people who mixed alcohol with diet drinks had higher breath alcohol concentration than those who mixed their alcohol with sugar sweetened beverages.

Researchers say the participants felt the same regardless of which drinks they consumed, but only the ones who had the diet mixers were above the .08 legal limit to drive.

Researchers think the sugar drinks help slow down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream.
