Did you know mixing alcohol with diet drinks can put at a higher risk of intoxication?

If you mix alcohol with diet drinks, it may help you cut down on calories, but did you know it will also make you more intoxicated?
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- If you mix alcohol with diet drinks, it may help you cut down on calories, but did you know it will also make you more intoxicated?

A study in the journal “Alcoholism” finds that test subjects who drank vodka mixed with a diet drink also had a higher level of impairment than those who downed vodka and a sugary drink.

The reason: Scientists think that sugar reduces the absorption of alcohol in the intestines, so diet beverages – with no sugar – may put you at a higher risk of intoxication.
