Dear Andre
Don’t Mix. Most combinations are not inherently dangerous, though the effects of mixing vary from individual to individual. Generally, you want to avoid mixing the 3 types of alcohol – beer, wine, and liquor. A shot of JD and a shot of vodka are generally not harmful. A couple of glasses of wine, some ale and a tequila shooter can combine for a dangerous scenario. The different drinks potentiate the effect of the others.

I have exactly the same, embarrasing problem - and that's not even mixing my drinks!!! Apparently it has something to do with our blood (?). However, would like doc to comment and maybe recommend a remedy. Please doc, and thank you.
