Back in November, a TikTok video from Loryn Powell went viral demonstrating the power that Diet Coke has to get you drunker as a mixer than regular Coke. Now a doctor has chimed in to explain why. Dr. Karan Raj says the reason is simple…Diet Coke doesn’t have any sugar. With more sugar to digest with regular Coke, it takes longer for your stomach to empty into the small intestine, which slows down the absorption of alcohol…and it’s true with all diet beverages.
