My question is: Why is it that when I drink say; six 500ml cans of 5% beer (that's 15 units of alcohol) I can feel just a teeny bit woozy the following morning - and yet, if I drink ten large measures of Gin and Tonic (that's 20 units of alcohol) I feel bright and breezy the following morning, with no ill-effects whatsoever? Alcohol is alcohol. But what's in the beer that isn't in the Gin? Well the only thing that I can think of is Carbs. So maybe it's the carbs which are bad for you and not the alcohol? Now before you all pile in and start talking about my liver, remember that I'm Irish. Last week I had a series of blood tests including a liver function test, the result of which I'm happy to share. So here's to my next Gin & Tonic! (which will be in about five minutes).
