This is an interesting concept, I know that when I’m drinking around 11 to 4 in the daytime, I tend to be much more relaxed and will sip my cocktail at a much slower rate that I would doing into the bar right after work. I know that the first drink after work tends to go down rather quickly, compared to the first one in the daytime. I feel like my stress level of morning and afternoon vs evening and night time are a real big part of it.
Studies have found that alcohol sensitivity heightens at night. Another expert said while drinking during the day you tend to sit and eat longer. Summer is just around the corner for some parts of the world and many are looking forward to spending their days sipping a cocktail in the sun. But those who have participated in day drinking may have noticed that consuming alcohol during the day does not have the same effects as it does during a night out.
The time you drink will influence what you do while consuming alcohol, if you are enjoying brunch with friends, you are more inclined to sit longer and eat more food. Experts have shared their thoughts and work with New York Magazine's Katie Heaney in understanding why four mimosa at brunch feels different from four vodka sodas at night. However, another professor of nutrition sciences said that the answer is simply hazy.
Other opinions indicate that the time you drink will influence what you do while consuming alcohol. Enjoying brunch with friends, you are more inclined to sit longer and eat more food. There is always some people who do enjoy late night snacks after a fun night out, but how and what you eat are at the different times also varies. Because day drinking usually occurs at a time with food, it usually takes longer to feel the effects - whereas night owls may not eat until a few hours before heading to bed.
How this plays into why you feel different drinking during the day is because you may be more relaxed sitting around a table with a few friends in the warm sun than you do dancing in a crowd at a nightclub. These findings have led researchers to believe that alcohol is absorbed much faster when the person feels under duress.
