Stop promoting energy drinks

21st September 2011

Alcohol Concern Cymru has urged pubs and clubs to stop promoting caffeine energy drinks as mixers for spirits.

It claims they can mask the effects of alcohol so drinkers may be less aware of how drunk they are and wants producers to carry warnings in their marketing campaigns. Drinks companies say energy drinks only contain the same caffeine as a cup of coffee, though with sales of energy drinks such as Red Bull and Rockstar rising in recent years, concerns have been raised about caffeinated alcoholic drinks in countries including the America, Canada, Australia and Scotland.
