Nighttime Alcohol

It’s not just you: Ice-cold beer really does taste better in the evening than it does in the morning. That’s because the brain’s “rewards” system is connected to the body clock, and cravings for pleasurable things are often stronger in the evening. New research may lead to a way to break that connection: A drug that influences the immune system has been shown to disrupt evening desires for alcohol in mice, and while more testing is needed, the results suggest the drug could help to control human urges to drink during the time when temptation is strongest.
