Tropical Drinks: Tasty, Healthy

This keeps getting better and better: a team of researchers found that ethanol (i.e. alcohol) increases the level of antioxidants in berries.  The study did not indicate whether or not other fruits were affected by treatment with alcohol.

So between these two studies, we can safely conclude that dark chocolate brownies with  Gran Marnier-soaked strawberries and raspberries is probably about the healthiest food out there.  Extra points if consumed with a red wine sangria.  Yay!



  1. Just catching up on some reading and I wanted to call your attention to the move to change the FDA definition of chocolate to include that garbage with no cocoa butter in the interest of “Modernizing” food standards.

  2. I didn’t know that! What an atrocity. Thanks for letting me know.
