Who doesn't love a G & T every now and then? 

But if you just thought it was just the booze going to your head, then read on because this study has scientifically proven that if you drink gin, you are actually sexier.

As if we didn't need another reason to mix up a cheeky G&T this evening.

According to the study, all different sorts of alcohol have a different effect on your emotions as well as your behaviour.

The study surveyed 30,000 people aged between 18 and 34 over 21 countries and they found that drinkers of spirits, beer and wine all had different answers to questions about their thoughts and feelings.

Wine and beer were found to be heavily associated with tiredness and relaxation, which probably won't come as a surprise for anyone who finds themselves fast asleep after a quick one in the local pub.

Sexiness isn't the only benefit that gin brings us, as a G&T might actually do wonders for your hay fever this summer.

According to ELLE, beer (and some other drinks) contain histamine which (as you've probably worked out with your common sense) is the opposite of your hay fever tablets.

Yes, beer contains the exact substance that's released in your body when you have an allergic reaction. Damn. As a result, it can worsen your hay fever (or any other allergic reaction) and even trigger asthma symptoms.

The drinks with the fewest sulphites and histamines are the kind you should be going for, such as a G&T or a vodka.

I'll drink to that!
