Alcohol with energy drinks, a dangerous combination

Mixing alcohol and energy drinks poses a serious public health risk. The explanation is because people who drink heavily, become more intoxicated, and have more negative drinking consequences when they ingest both energy drinks and alcohol, compared to when they only use. Drinking either alcohol and energy drinks on the same day or combining the two at the same time tends to cause you to spend more time drinking—thus consuming more alcohol—than you would have without the caffeinated drinks.
