A former co-worker of mine used to jokingly call most of what I drank at the time “fru-fru” … as in fruity, girly, etc. You get the idea. As it turns out, fru-fru drinks are good for you:
Researchers in the U.S. and Thailand have discovered that the more fruit you have in an alcoholic drink the better it is for you.
It’s actually the ethanol that you find in drinks such as rum and vodka. When it is added to fruity drinks it actually makes the fruit part of the drink even healthier.
Is this really surprising news for anyone? We know that some alcohol, in moderation, can be good for you, so it stands to reason that if you add fruit to the mix they’re going to add vitamins and minerals and nutrients. Though the fact that certain alcohol can actually increase the power of the fruit is interesting.
So there you go, another reason to have a Hump Day Happy Hour after work today.
I’ll drink to that! :cool:
So drink up, or better yet buy your buddy a fru-fru! :mrgreen:
