Alcohol that makes you feel drunk without the coinciding hangover may be available within five years, according to researchers.

The synthetic alcohol, named Alcarelle, was created by Professor David Nutt - who believes it will change alcohol consumption, once it is regulated.

According to Nutt, he came up with the synthetic alcohol after first discovering an antidote to alcohol in 1983 when he was still a PhD student.

“I was studying the effects of alcohol on the Gaba system,” he told The Guardian.

Although Nutt realised that the antidote was too dangerous, he decided to continue studying Gaba receptors and how they react under the influence of alcohol.
