If You Drink Spirits, You Probably Think You’re Sexy AF

Does hitting the bar make you feel saucy? Relaxed? Or just plain pissed off?

Scientists keen on understanding why we drink have revealed the emotional factors that drive us to booze.

Their international survey of just under 30,000 people aged 18 to 24 ranked wine the number one go to for making us feel relaxed (53%), followed by beer (50%).

Spirits, on the other hand, were the least likely to make us feel relaxed – just 20% - and the most likely to elicit feelings of aggression (30%).

But before you get all worked up, take heart in the fact spirits are much more likely to make drinkers feel energetic and confident (59%), and more than four in 10 (42.5%) said spirits made them feel sexy.

So cheers to that!
