Drink a single drink

For example, take vodka and champagne. Even if you drink a glass of champagne at the beginning of the evening, and then drink vodka only all evening, intoxication will come much faster than if you drink vodka only all evening. The thing is that carbon dioxide, which is released from champagne, has an irritating effect on the stomach, and several tens of times increases its ability to absorb alcohol not only from champagne, but also from vodka. As a result, it threatens a very heavy hangover.

In addition, there is a theory thatCan harm the body mixing beverages made from different raw materials. Similar schemes are possible if other drinks are consumed. Therefore, minimize the risk of getting a hangover if you drink only one chosen drink all evening: the body will be easier to digest it.

Drink beverages made from one raw material

Some of the main types of alcohols are described below: Try to avoid mixing them, for example, wine made from grapes, and tequila, obtained from agave. And on the contrary, experts assure that it is possible to mix grape wine and cognac (and in France, for example, there is a tradition, wine to wash down with brandy only in order to avoid the morning hangover).

A common advice is to use low-alcohol beverages first, and then drinks of a larger fortress, if you mix them, is no more than a myth. No studies on this subject have been found.
