WidgetBucks - Trend Watch -

Now this is a good excuse to drink and get drunk, its all in the name of STAYING HEALTHY!

Stumbled upon this report on the health benefits when you mix alcohol with bright fruits. Now this is good new, so instead of a morning coffee, I will have vodka orange, or strawberry next time :)

From Reuters

"A fruity cocktail may not only be fun to drink but may count as health food, U.S. and Thai researchers said on Thursday.

Adding ethanol -- the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits -- boosted the antioxidant nutrients in strawberries and blackberries, the researchers found.

Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the addition of a splash of alcohol, they report in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture." full story

This is the way I want to start my day, healthy and drunk :p
