In brief: Allergic to alcohol
You might be allergic to alcohol.
Some people have this condition while others may be allergic to a component in an alcoholic beverage (e.g. The mixer). I would avoid alcohol if it gave me those problems.

In brief: Yes
And why are you trying it over and over when you are getting the same results? Some people have a hereditary predisposition to having this kind of reaction.
Nobody needs alcohol to live, and in this era of healthier consumption, many people simply choose to drink non-alcoholic beverages. You can be one of them.
