Or as I was told as a youngster - "never mix the grape with the grain"

So you can have beer and whisky in an evening, or wine and brandy, or even cider and wine as apples are more grape-like than grain-like.

But you can't have beer and brandy, beer and wine, wine and whisky, or beer and cider.

This at least explains why snakebite is so lethal.
