Here’s the news to take you into the weekend – alcoholic fruit cocktails are good for you!
According to US and Thai boffins, any coloured fruit might be made even more healthy with the addition of a splash of alcohol.
Adding ethanol – the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits – boosted the antioxidant nutrients in strawberries and blackberries, the research published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture found.
Apparently the study did not address whether adding a little cocktail umbrella enhanced the effects but it’s bound to.
That just luvvely as Del Boy would say.
