Alcohol does a lot of stuff to us. We may love to knock back a few cold beers, indulge in a glass of red wine, or stir whiskey on the rocks around in a highball glass to make ourselves feel like a fancy rich person in a fedora circa 1947, but along with the fun benefits of drinking, we all know there are downsides, too. Just ask any girl who had too many margaritas at happy hour and is now sitting on the floor of a Mexican restaurant bathroom crying to a stranger about her ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend. Or ask any guy who thought shotgunning two Coors Lites in a row was a great idea.
Alcohol can make us happy, but it can also make us feel a range of emotions we'd rather not have: sadness, guilt, regret, sleepiness, the urge to do Mariah Carey karaoke even though it's completely out of our range, and for some people: anger. And it turns out different kinds of alcohol can make us feel different ways.
