Not long after the initial wave of energy drinks swept through America, alcoholic energy drinks also hit the shelves of mini-marts everywhere. Alcoholic energy drinks are exactly what they sound like, energy drinks mixed with spirits… and dangerous! Since the rise in popularity of these dangerous drinks, young people have been educating adults and policymakers about the prevalence of these products and their dangerous appeal. Thanks to these efforts and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) warnings to the creators of these drinks, alcoholic energy drinks have been disappearing from alcohol outlets. Unfortunately, these products are still available in some areas so Friday Night Live will continue to educate the public on the many health risks and social costs that alcoholic energy drinks pose.
