According to a new study, drinking copious amounts of liquor can give you more energy. With this revelation, we anticipate that an absurd amount of alcohol will be consumed today. The Journal of Clinical Investigation discovered that frequent drinking increases the levels of acetate in the brain, thus working as a substitute for sugar in the bloodstream and becoming energy.

So basically, the more you drink, the more energy you'll have. But don't get it twisted: the liquor itself isn't what gives you energy, it's that drinking more over an extended period of time can give you a boost if you're tired. This lends a lot of credibility to the theory that drinking is a marathon and not a sprint.
