Does champagne go straight to your head? Yes it does.
Carbonated beverages, like champagne, affects the brain faster than non-carbonated drinks. While alcohol is normally absorbed through the walls of the small intestine as the beverage moves through the lower digestive tract, this is only partially true with champagne. As a result of carbonation, a substantial amount of alcohol is absorbed through the walls of your stomach long before it even reaches the small intestine.
When exposed to the millions of tiny bubbles of trapped carbon dioxide in a carbonated drink, the overall pressure of the stomach cavity increases, facilitating the diffusion of ethanol from your stomach into your bloodstream.
A friend told me that drinking beer and other alcoholic beverages with a straw makes you drunk faster. She gave me a logical scientific explanation which made sense to me. Unfortunately I don’t remember the explanation but it seems to be the case. Perhaps something to keep in mind.
