Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I mix whiskey and tequila?

Answer: Yes, you can. Although it’s a bit unusual to mix these two core alcohols, there’s nothing wrong if you can follow the right instructions.

2. Whiskey or tequila gets me drunk faster?

It depends on the proof number. 80 proof spirits mean 40% alcohol which gets you drunk at the same rate if you take them straight. So, whiskey and tequila make a near-zero difference.

3. Does mixing different types of alcohol make you drunker?

No. How much you’ll get drunk depends on how much alcohol you’re drinking, not on where the drinks come from.

4. Whiskey or Tequila, which one is healthier?

It’s tequila. Because, unlike whiskey, tequila comes with a lower level of impurities. Also, it has a lower level of calories and sugar compared to whiskey.
