If you want a pay rise, you could do worse than pop down to your local and get a round in, if new research is to be believed.
A Canadian university professor has found a positive correlation between the amount people drink and the amount they earn.
Professor Chris Auld, at the University of Calgary, said that his research confirms the so-called alcohol/income puzzle.
The research showed that people who drink more than average are more likely to be successful and earn more.
The reasons behind the correlation could be that the stress of a high-paying job drives people to drink, or that more sociable people are more likely to achieve career success, Auld said.
The economics don has just been given more funding to research the alcohol/earnings link.
But Professor Auld warned that the findings should not be used as an excuse to drink your way up the career ladder.
