Celebration is never complete without the involvement of alcohol -this is perhaps one the things the world has been blessed with without realizing it. While alcohol often gets a bad rap, truth is that, there are also lots of benefits in it too. But we don't often talk about it, maybe because we aren't aware of them or because we feel that the benefits are not so real or maybe perhaps we don't want it to look as if we've recieved a free ticket to being a drunk. While alcohol holds a record of being one of the greatest gifts to the world, let us quickly look how much countries actually cherish this gift. 
Below are countries where boozing is one of the best ways to live. They hold the world's record of alcohol consumption. Do not be alarmed if your country is there. 

United Kingdom
Speaking of countries that consumes alcohol, the UK got you on this. Even in the presence of the pandemic British people still maintain highness. This is a actually a gift nothing can take from them, not even Corona Virus. Almost half of consumers surveyed in the United Kingdom said that their alcohol consumption habits were not affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in 2020. 

As beer culture continues to gains popularity in Austria, a large amount of consumption has been on the increase. Austria is probably the second highest alcohol per capital consumption in the world. 

Right form the days of their Ancestors, ale consumption has been one of the most cherished traditions in Romania. Romanians are ranked among the biggest alcohol consumers in Europe, with an average consumption of 12.6 liters of pure alcohol per inhabitant aged 15 and above per year. 

According to the information generated by INEGI, beer consumption in Mexico per capita has been on a steady increase since 2014. On average it is said that Mexicans consumes 1.3 litres of alcohol per week, making Mexico the 4th highest overall consumer of beer in the world.

United States of America
Americans consumed an estimated 6.3 billion gallons of beer in 2018 alone, which equals about 26.2 gallons per drinking-age adult. Holding to the fact that almost all the brewing companies have a base here, it is no surprise that America made the list. However, you may be thinking that Americans are the top drunks in the world right? wrong! it actually Czech Republic...these guys are heavy drinkers.  

Czech Republic
With an average annual consumption of over 11.6 litres of pure alcohol per capita, Czechs are the top drinkers in the world. For over 26 years straight, Czech Republic has topped the list of beer consumption per capita, ranking more than any other country in the world.
