The surveys asked participants whether they consumed energy drinks that contained alcohol and if they mixed caffeine and alcoholic drinks on their own. The researchers considered traditional caffeinated alcoholic beverages to be alcohol mixed with soda, coffee and tea. Non-traditional beverages were pre-mixed alcoholic energy drinks and alcohol mixed with energy drinks or shots.

The caffeine scene, part one
“Mmmm, great flavor and this definitely has me hooked!” “Thanks and no one knows better than you the time I’ve put into this.” “I imagine the ability to keep us awake on a busy night like this is another special feature of your brew.” “When we hit 2 AM we can compare notes, for that matter 3 AM as I know you’ve got a lot left to work on here.” *** The task that was consuming so much of the night was a “self promotion” brochure for my Graphic Design III class. So much text and photos to fit into the piece and I had underestimated the time it would take to pull of this assignment. Instead of just a self promotion brochure I decided to make a brochure for my non-existent design firm. I was leaning towards starting my own business shortly after graduation and this brochure brought about a lot of discussion that night between the two of us. We had bounced around a lot of strategies as to what we might do after graduation from living in Manhattan to living in the country to living both in both locations.
