That Red Bull and vodka sure is tasty. But the liquid equivalent of a speedball can also zonk you out hard: The stimulant effect of the energy drink masks the symptoms of intoxication, leading to overindulgence.

I’d think that any caffeinated drink mixer, like Coke, would have a similar effect. After all, you’re still combining stimulant (cola) and depressant (alcohol). I guess the extra kick in energy drinks is what pushes things over the edge.

I suppose if you want to avoid the ill effects, you could go for caffeine-free Coke and non-alcoholic vodka. But then, all you’re left with is the damned taste…
