Summer is always a time for picnics, kebabs and other outdoor activities. The heat makes many Russians experiment, mixing alcoholic and soft drinks into traditional and not so cocktails. The journalists of" Vechernaya Moskva " met with a nutritionist Anna Belousova and learned that it is better not to combine in the summer heat in one glass.
A specialist in the field of nutrition said that any alcoholic beverages mixed with carbonated ones are fraught with danger. The gas contributes to the enhanced assimilation of ethanol and therefore intoxication comes faster and in a more severe form. Also, do not forget about the delayed effect, which unexpectedly gives way to fans of "mixing" in hot weather after a considerable time after drinking alcohol.
Anna Belousova warned that the most dangerous of the cocktails common in Russia is the well-known "Ruff", consisting of beer and vodka. The insidiousness of this combination is that intoxication is twice as strong and often the drinker is simply not ready for such an attack on his body. Just one glass of the rattlesnake mixture "taken on the chest" in the heat – and the rest can be hopelessly spoiled.
In addition, Belousova urged to know a sense of proportion in cocktails containing liqueurs, for example, "B-52". The nutritionist said that the strength of such compositions is well disguised by sweetness and it is easier and more pleasant to drink them than just strong alcohol. Also, the increased concentration of sugar and the combination with fruit juices perfectly mask low-quality alcohol. Therefore, the cocktail "Screwdriver" on juices can also be very insidious.
According to Anna Belousova, in hot weather it is better to give up alcoholic beverages altogether. If there is a strong desire to drink, it is better to postpone everything for the evening and use only weak types. In the event that the sense of proportion was still lost, it is best to save yourself not with new-fangled expensive hangover medications, but with simple sorbents, for example, activated carbon.
We would like to add that in recent years the range of hot cocktails has become somewhat impoverished, compared to the dashing 80s, when everything that contains at least a little alcohol was used.
