Myth: Switching Between Drinks Makes You More Drunk

There is a saying, "Beer on whiskey, mighty risky." This saying is not about how mixing drinks makes you more drunk, but a warning about how mixing different types of alcohol might make you sick to your stomach.

Similar to the expression, "Beer before liquor, never been sicker. Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear." Mixing drink types is usually a recipe for disaster. Your body can only process so much before it goes into preservation mode.

Yet keep in mind that drinking a lot of anything alcoholic can lead to dehydration and a nasty hangover.
