The risky stuff

Energy drinks

The caffeine in energy drinks can mask the effects of alcohol and make it more likely for you to drink too much. Energy drinks alone can cause heart problems and when combined with alcohol the effects can be even worse.

Jungle juice

Don't know who made it. Don't know what's in it. Don't know where it's been. Don't drink it.

Shots

Shots may be small, cheap, and easy, but they're also just as potent, harmful, and hard to keep track of. To be safe, steer clear of taking shots, especially while pregaming.
