Good news for frou-frou drinkers!

Fruity cocktails count as health food, study finds

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- A fruity cocktail may not only be fun to drink but may count as health food, U.S. and Thai researchers say.

Adding ethanol -- the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits -- boosted the antioxidant nutrients in strawberries and blackberries, the researchers found.

Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the addition of a splash of alcohol, they report in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture.

Praise Jesus and pass the daiquiris!

I'm gonna live forever ...

As my great grandmother used to say "all things are fine in moderation". Guess she was right!

First thought: a disheveled Dave Foley under a tree, clutching his precious Girly-Drink.

Both, probably, but I bet his farcical effervescence is a lot more subdued now that his juicer has been rendered obsolete by alcohol.

Instead of spending countless hours and wattage crushing berries and spinach into a revolting concoction health nuts need only apply alcohol and serve. No velure sweatsuit needed.
