If you drink Red Bull with alcohol, can it kill you?


  1. Red Bull contains caffeine and taurine (an amino acid).
  2. Caffeine and taurine are stimulants and help you feel more alert and awake.
  3. Drinking alcohol impairs your judgment and reaction time.


Drinking Red Bull with alcohol - While the Red Bull will make you feel alert, the alcohol will decrease your reaction time AND your ability to judge how drunk you are.

  1. You will feel a false sense of alertness.
  2. You will likely drink beyond your normal (non-Red Bull) alcohol tolerance level.

Bottom line - The combination of alcohol and Red Bull will not kill you directly; however, combining Red Bull with alcohol can lead you to drink more alcohol than you normally would--and subject you to all the dangers such a state entails.
