The brown soft drink is a popular base for mixed drinks. Mixing it with alcohol can encourage even more consumption.

Although cola is considered the standard mixed drink for spirits such as vodka and rum, this is not a good idea. This is because it has been shown that alcohol, in combination with cola, can be quite harmful. This is because a normal cola in 330 ml can contain around 34 milligrams of caffeine, while Diet Coke contains slightly more at around 46 mg. This is less than the 63 milligrams usually found in a single shot of espresso. However, people are more likely to drink several vodka cokes in an evening than espressos. Unfortunately, for those who like to mix their alcohol with caffeine, there is bad news.

According to the US CDC, taking caffeine with alcohol can mask the effects of the alcohol, meaning you drink more: “The caffeine may mask the depressant effects of alcohol, making drinkers feel more alert than they otherwise would. As a result, they may drink more alcohol and be more impaired than they realize, increasing the risk of alcohol-related harm.”

In addition, a 2007 study by the University of Manchester found that carbonation can cause alcohol to be absorbed more quickly. The researchers compared the alcohol absorption time of pure vodka, vodka mixed with water, and vodka mixed with sparkling water.

It was found that almost all participants absorbed the alcohol mixed with still or sparkling water faster. In addition, Princeton University warns that the carbon dioxide in carbonated drinks, such as cola, increases the pressure in some people’s stomachs and pushes the alcohol through the stomach lining and into the bloodstream.
