A useful mnemonic rhyme to remember, in order to avoid a hangover (or worse!):
"Beer on whisky? Very risky!
The rule for "whisky" applies to all spirits in general! Rock Hopp has e-mailed (3/00) a variation using the US-style "liquor":
"Liquor after beer, you're in the clear.
Ultimately one should try never to mix grape and grain...
"Wine on beer? Makes you queer!"
Jeanie has e-mailed (10/99) a further variation:
"Wine after beer makes you feel queer
All combined, this suggests one might be able to start with wine, move onto beer and then end up with whisky - but don't take our word for it, as we haven't done any actual research on the results! A proper medical explanation of the effect of mixing drinks in the stomach would be much appreciated if anyone knows it...
