SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Those memes about heavy drinking during the pandemic…. are actually an accurate reflection of life during coronavirus.

A recent study by the money saving app Ibotta shows sales of hard alcohol increased in 2020.

Spirits and Hard Liquor sales went up by 33% over 2019 with liquer, brandy and tequila the most popular libations.

Wine sales squeezed out a 12 % growth in 2020.

Apparently, Americans prefer the hard stuff because the study shows overall beer sales actually dropped by 2%

Unfortunately there is no solid scientific proof that indicates throwing down a few shots of the sauce will either prevent or fight the effects of COVID-19 but doing your own research might be fun.

Bottoms up!
