Fruity Cocktails Count as Health Food

According to a recent study by US and Thai researchers, fruit cocktails count as health food.

By adding ethanol, which is a type of alcohol found in spirits such as rum and vodka to the fruits such as strawberries and blueberries, boosted the anti-oxidant nutrients.

“Any colored fruit or vegetable is rich in antioxidants, which are chemicals that can cancel out the cell-damaging effects of compounds called free radicals.”

Finally, something we can all enjoy that is good for us. πŸ˜€

I wonder if fruit cocktails will be introduced to hospital menus now that we know it is really good for you. Or maybe they could leave a chocolate mint on our pillow and hand us a fruit cocktail on arrival. πŸ˜€
