Five skills that are improved by drinking alcohol

Alcohol sharpens your sense of smell

Not only can alcohol aid learning and make you an amazing dancer, it can also sharpen your sense of smell. Yaara Endevelt of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel found that drinkers were better at identifying different odours. The ideal amount of alcohol was two units within an hour for women and three for men.

In 2014, Endevelt asked 20 volunteers to identify subtle changes in smells, then asked some of the group to drink a small shot of vodka and try again. Then she took to the local pubs and challenged drinkers to a scratch and sniff. In both experiments she found that those who’d drunk a small amount of alcohol had a sharper sense of smell.
