depends...

ANY kind of alcohol will stop your liver from producing glucose. Which means if you fall below 70, your body wont kick in. If your levels are general high, drink liquor with diet pop and your numbers will fall but safe levels... be sure to keep your meter with you at all times while drinking... and keep juice handy....
