I had a friend who used to mix Mountain Dew (diet of course) with Coffee – maybe he is next on the F.D.A.’s “hit list”:

Caffeine may lead people to underestimate how drunk they are, giving drinkers a false sense of confidence that they can perform tasks they are too impaired to undertake.

    I don’t really see the confusion here.

    I order a glass, with rum, and a caffeinated beverage. The government says this is OK.

    I purchase a can, with rum and a caffeinated beverage premixed. The government says this is no good.

    See, isn’t that clear as day?
