Mixing alcohol and energy drinks may increase urge to drink

Adding energy drinks to alcoholic beverages may increase the urge to drink.

Australian researchers had 75 adults consume either an alcohol-only drink, or one that combined alcohol with Red Bull.

They found people who were given the energy drink reported an increased desire to keep drinking, compared to people who had alcohol alone.

However, researchers can't say this actually means people drink more.
