Weekend Sip Tip

5.21.2010
We've all heard the adage "Beer before liquor, never been sicker." Some people may even swear by the saying. But where do malt drinks fall into the equation? Or wine, or hard ciders? The fact is, it doesn't really matter what you drink, or in which order you drink it. The only thing that affects your level of intoxication is how much you drink in what amount of time. You can stick strictly to beer, but three beer bongs in ten minutes might make you sick regardless. It is possible that certain combinations upset your stomach more than others, or that different ingredients may make you feel a bit queasy. If you choose to drink, stick to what you know, and stick to it for the night. Keeping with one type of drink better allows you to keep track of how much you consume. Pace yourself and you may find that instead of "never been sicker", you're just never sick. Keep your drinks in check, and keep your dinner down. Stop@Buzzed!
