Do carbonated drinks make you get drunk faster?

It includes any alcoholic drink that is ingested along with a carbonated mixer as well, because the magic happens in the stomach, rather than in the drink. Carbonation increases pressure in the stomach, which helps to force alcohol into the bloodstream via the stomach lining.

Do you get drunk faster with shots?

Hard liquors can get you drunk faster than beer or wine, as they have a higher alcohol content. Doing shots can be particularly useful, as you'll be absorbing high alcohol products fast. Vodka in particular has been shown to increase the speed of intoxication. Liquor has a very high alcohol content.
