Mix It Up

Mix It Up

When it comes to health, can one benefit from drinking alcohol?

It’s not only the number of calories in pre mixed drinks that determines whether or not it’s excellent or harmful.

Next time, consider how many servings of fruits and vegetables you could eat and their nutritional worth, sugar content, antioxidant content, and therapeutic benefits. In addition to that, of course!

What about those who are concerned about your health while you drink?

Here are some pointers to remember:

Low-calorie choice.

Vodka Soda is dull, so you’ll get that out of the way first.

Vodka and soda are among the healthiest drinks you can have, but it’s not without risks.

While drinking, you may fall asleep since it is so monotonous. Choking and death can occur because of this behaviour.

50ml of vodka has an estimated 96 calories. There are no calories in soda water. This beverage contains no nutritional benefit whatsoever. 

To put it simply: Bourbon and gin typically have between 97 and 110 calories per half-gallon serving (depending on the brand). It’s like getting 50 times more flavour for a few extra calories.’ It’ll be a far more pleasant experience, and it won’t leave you feeling hollow and empty (like the vodka soda).

Vitamin C is a second.

Many cocktail garnishes are out there now, but the simple squeeze and slice of lemon/lime or other citrus fruits provide a lot of vitamin C, which improves the immune system and neutralises threats that damage the body.

Adding fruit juice to base alcohol to produce a cocktail is common, and fresh juices are the best since they are filled with vitamin C. However, excessive consumption will raise your blood sugar levels, so use caution.

1. Mixers have medicinal effects.

When it comes to determining the health benefits of a spirit, the most important thing to keep in mind is what’s being paired with it. Mixers and pre mixed drinks are the most important thing to watch when slimming down.

Tonic Water includes quinine, a natural antimalarial, which is found in the bitterness of the tonic. Fever-Free tonics are recommended since they are made with all-natural components and the best quinine available.

Anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibiotic, antiviral, and many other therapeutic qualities of ginger may do wonders for your health. Other nutrients found in spinach include various vitamins and minerals. That’s a lot of deliciousness there in front of you!

2. Spirits old-fashioned-cocktail has medicinal qualities.

The herbaceous flavour of gin is generally a clear victor in this category. This is mainly a mix of specific ingredients. Ingredients, such as rosemary, citrus peels, nutmeg, sage, and lemongrass, make this infusion. If you’re feeling under the weather, raise a glass of gin, which is loaded with anti-infectives, antioxidants, and other compounds that may help you fight illness.

3. Bitters have medicinal qualities.

Angostura bitters, which contain components like orange peel and quinine, are a common addition to many cocktails, and this is good news for you as they are said to have healing powers. Is it a cure for hiccups or an upset stomach? It’s been said to be the latter.

So that’s it.

Just one more reason you should be sipping on a cocktail at all times. Your next cocktail may have several health advantages if you make the right choice.
