Vasodilation: Alcohol is a moderately potent vasodilator. As such, consumption of it can cause the capillaries near the skin to dilate, resulting in more blood flow to the skin and a flushed appearance.

If you're referring: to a carbonated soft drink, there could be a reason. Carbonated drinks contain Carbon Dioxide (CO2). When it's in the can, CO2 is dissolved in liquid.

When your stomach gets stretched (distended), some people experience pain, burping, fullness, reflux and/or nausea. ...Read more
Vasodilatation: Alcohol acts as a vasodilator, a drug which causes small blood vessels (capillaries) to dilate. Some of this comes from an intermediate by-product of alcohol metabolism called acetaldehyde, which is usually rapidly metabolized further, but in some people it can accumulate, causing more flushing than in other people. This happens particularly in people of asian background and native americans. ...Read more
