Participants were plied with more alcohol at a later date, with the first two groups switching to the opposite drinking regimen, while the third group drank only wine or beer depending on what they had consumed the week before.

Determined to find a way to help people have a better day after a night out, the researchers recruited 90 fearless soulsin Germany between the ages of 19 and 40 to drink beer, wine or both. Hangovers are likely to be influenced by ingredients other than pure alcohol, such as colourings and flavourings, it is therefore suggested that dark spirits such as rum and Bourbon may cause a more severe hangover than vodka. Two, controls could not be found who were willing to participate in a study on drinking alcohol by abstaining. One group drank around 2.5 pints of beer and then four large glasses of wine, while the second group started with the glasses of wine and then drank the beers. On a second intervention day (crossover) ≥1 wk later, study-group subjects were switched to the opposite drinking order.

But a group of scientists now have said that's not true: The order in which drinks are consumed doesn't affect a hangover.

To do so, the researchers examined the effects that drinking beer and wine in different orders had on 90 study participants who were all 19-40 years old. The only reliable way of predicting how miserable you'll feel the next day is by how drunk you feel and whether you are sick.

It doesn't matter whether you stick to only beer or drink just wine or even alternate the two - you're still going to wake up with a hangover.

The researchers tested the students once, and then tested them again swapping their orders.

Although women tended to have slightly worse hangovers than men, none of the groups had significantly different hangover scores, the findings showed. The following day they reported how intense their hangovers were, measuring them by scoring their thirst, fatigue, headache and nausea levels. A randomized controlled multiarm matched-triplet crossover trial of beer and wine'. "We should all pay attention to these red flags when drinking", he went on.

And as cruel as they may seem, hangovers serve an important objective, according to the study's authors.

Instead, hangover intensity was best predicted by whether the patients themselves felt that they were getting drunk, or if they threw up during their drinking.

According to study senior author Kai Hensel, a senior clinical fellow at the University of Cambridge, "Unpleasant as hangovers are, we should remember that they do have one important benefit, at least: They are a protective warning sign that will certainly have aided humans over the ages to change their future behavior". "They can help us learn from our mistakes".
