So if you are mixing your alcohol with energy drinks then you could be risking yourself. This new trend of boozing, mainly seen by young drinkers who like to mix it with some energy drink to enjoy more energetically in the clubs all the night. In a study conducted on 4000 students, it was seen that consuming alcohol mixed with energy drinks has doubled the risk of clubbers hurting themselves or taken advantage sexually. It is also found that the cocktail, made of alcohol and energy drinks contains high levels of caffeine which again is a matter of concern.
The change in the nature of consumption of alcohol by youngsters has shown that by mixing alcohol these young drinkers have raised the amount of consumption of alcohol in comparison with other drinkers. They are also more exposed to take sexual advantage of others and also being taken advantage of themselves. This psychology also points out the fact that nowadays youngsters are inclined towards drinking more, so they mix alcohol with energy drinks which helps them to consume more liquor.
