Despite what doctors tell you, there’s at least one adult beverage that could potentially be good for you. In moderation, of course.
Looking to shed some weight? Don’t want a massive hangover the next day? Trying to fight off malaria? Drink a gin and tonic. It does this and more, according to The Sun.
A G&T clocks in at just 64 calories; far less than the 182 in a pint of beer or the pound-packing 228 in a glass of white wine.
Gin is made from juniper berries, which are full of vitamin C. Even if the distilling process dilutes that benefit, a squeeze of lime does the trick.
As long as you don’t overdo it, chances are you won’t feel wrecked following a night of downing G&Ts. That’s because clear liquors like gin (and vodka) don’t contain tannins, which can contribute to headaches.
I’ve been a clear liquor drinker for a while now… brown liquor never works out well for me, so I’m rejoicing in this news. BUT, I don’t like tonic, so I’m wondering if I can sub club soda instead? I think that’s a good substitution.
