We’ve got some pretty good whiskey glasses to choose from, but if you’re going to make the trek to one of these bars, make sure you pick one that doesn’t contain too much alcohol.
And it might just save you money.
One of the biggest reasons whiskey drinkers are spending more than they should is that they’re drinking more often.
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the number of regular drinkers has increased by nearly 30% over the past decade.
The average annual price of a drink in the U.S. has increased from $12.28 in 2008 to $13.68 in 2016, and in 2017 the average price for a whiskey cocktail rose from $6.15 to $8.12, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
While some bars are going for the more traditional, high-alcohol cocktail with a little bourbon and a shot, other bars offer cocktails with vodka, gin, rum, brandy, or even sparkling water, according the WSJ.
The WSJ also reports that while most people aren’t drinking as much as they used to, people are still drinking less and less, as alcohol consumption has been on the decline in the past 15 years.
The WSJ reports that drinking is up about 15% among men, but that’s only for drinkers between the ages of 30 and 54, and down 14% among those 65 and older.
According the WSJs report, it is not clear why people are drinking less.
The authors of the study argue that it may be due to a lack of understanding of the science behind alcohol, and a lack, according one recent study, of a healthy relationship with drinking.
The study of more than 3,000 adults found that only about one in three people who have ever been in a bar reported ever drinking.
But in fact, people who drank less were far less likely to be in a relationship, or to report having drunk fewer drinks in the previous year than their peers who drank more.
