What is a party without fun and games and, in most cases, alcohol? Of late, alcohol has been that one vital component that is needed in every party. From games to deep talks, everything is done with a beer in hand. Beer pong, Beer chugs, vodka shots all have become associated with partying. Many youngsters also mix energy drinks with alcohol for a little more oomph. Little do they know that this can be a serious hazard in terms of health. Before going into the harmful effects caused by the mixing, let us first try and understand why an increasing number of consumers are mixing their alcohol with energy drinks.
