How many rums and cokes to get you drunk?

In this article, we will answer the question “How many rums and cokes will get you drunk?”, and how sugar-free coke and rum can get you drunk faster?

Read on if you want to know how the rate of consuming alcohol affects how drunk you will get. This article also includes some tips on how to avoid getting high too quickly. 

How many rums and cokes will get you drunk?

If you drink four to five shots in a short span of time, say in 20 minutes, then there are chances that you will get drunk real quick and it will hit you quickly and maybe make you sick. 

But if you increase the time and give more intervals between the shots taken then there are fewer chances of you getting drunk because the alcohol will get absorbed with time, thus, making space for the upcoming shots. 

Besides, how drunk you will get depends on different factors that are highly variable like height, sex, weight, and metabolism. 

But it is confirmed that if you like rum and diet coke it will make you drunk faster as compared to individual consumption of alcohol. 

Coke is full of sugars, or to be precise, simpler sugars. So, when you consume it with any alcohol, which in this case is rum, you get drunk faster because the calories make absorption of alcohol difficult in the body. 

How much coke and rum will get you drunk? 

Usually, the human body with normal metabolism takes about an hour or so to metabolize or absorb the drink components. However, the intoxicant effect, such as that present in the rum and coke combination, will start to absorb within 20 minutes because of the high calories in coke as discussed above. 

The best way to keep yourself from getting drunk especially if you are new in the drinking business is to keep things neutral. 

Add 15-20 ml or two cups of coke with one-third of rum. This ratio will make you less drunk and will not make you sick too.

How sugar-free coke and rum can get you drunk faster? 

Researchers discovered that the rum or any alcohol consumed with the diet coke or sugar-free coke delays the absorption of alcohol and, so, gets you drunk for a longer period of time.

They performed a test called ‘Breath alcohol concentration’. The subjects of the experiment were those who consumed a sugar-free drink in combination with alcohol. 

The results were astonishing. They showed that the people who drank plain alcohol had a lesser breath-alcohol concentration as compared to those who drank the alcohol in combination with sugar-free coke, after 40 minutes of drinking. 

Those who drank the sugar-free coke and rum combination also performed worst on the computer test even though they weren’t feeling drunk.

It is proven from studies that a combination of soft drinks and alcohol will get you 25% drunker than the full-fat versions partnered with spirits

WELL. It turns out that the sugars in that pre-dinner meal stop your body from absorbing the sugars in the booze too quickly, which in turn stops you from getting your blotto before 8 pm. The sugars in a full-fat mixer do the same. 

“Mixing your alcoholic beverage with a sugar-free soda will make you feel drunker, faster,” said Cecile A. Marczinski, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky, who did the research.

How does the rate of consumption affect how drunk you will get? 

The shorter the period between your shots or drinks the greater are the chances of you getting high easily. 

How consumption of alcohol will affect an individual depends on several factors like the body weight of the consumer, the metabolic rate, the strength of alcohol used, the food consumption patterns, and others. 

For example, an average 20-year-old male drinking 50 percent alcohol doing shots with longer intervals of 20-30 minutes will start getting effects of alcohol after two or three shots and might get drunk after 6 shots but he will feel sick because of longer intervals between shots. 

Before getting drunk keep these points in mind: 

● Eat your meal properly 

● Make your drink and keep it diluted and less strong 

● Alternate with other soft drinks 

● Before going to bed drink water 

● And keep paracetamol with you just in case
