Food is never without drinks. With the millennials, a whole new group of party-goers, and the more modern families occupying the dinner tables, Coke certainly is not the main partner of our favorite dishes anymore. With all these changes, hence, LH Prime Cebu presents healthy alternative drinks. Before imbibing on all those drinks though, it might be good if you inserted a visit to a diagnostic clinic in Cebu for a quick medical exam in Cebu, just to be on the safe side and know that you are well, fit, and healthy.
Here is our list, from Business Insider,
- Manhattan –is a good choice for a cocktail that goes down easy, is actually a potent mix of herbs or flowers with water and alcohol. Once considered a staple of herbal remedies, evidence suggests this drink help ease digestion.
- Red Wine – a glass may not be a common choice for hard partiers, but some studies suggest that the ingredient called resveratrol, could protect against a variety of age-related diseases.
- Screwdriver – this OJ may be packed with sugar, but just one cup will get to your recommended daily value of Vitamin C. Mix this with vodka to make this classic drink.
- Beer – provided you choose a variety that is lower in calories, has health benefits too. The antioxidant content of beer is equivalent to that of wine, also, beer contains more protein and B vitamins than wine. Silicon, a mineral found in beer, could also contribute to stronger bones.
- Bloody Mary – The salt in this drink may help in replenishing electrolytes that you sweat. It also has an antioxidant called lycopene, found in tomato juice, which helps decrease the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Snacking on the celery in your glass can’t hurt either.
Then again, the best drink and healthiest of all is: Water! Alcohol dehydrates you. Instead, try drinking a glass or two, or more, as you dance the night away.
