Whiskey is the key to what your party persona deserves. He can be taken straight or with ginger-ale. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark liquor. Now, recent studies haven proven this as whiskey is the healthiest alcoholic beverage.
Researchers examined different types of bacteria that can survive in ice. 31 species of bacteria were found in bar ice and whiskey proved to be the champion in killing all the different types of bacteria it came to contact with. In this study, researchers tested a variety of drinks to see which was most resilient. Vodka nor Coca-Cola killed the bacteria but whiskey, our unsung hero, go the job done and eradicated ALL the bacteria.
Even though taking care of yourself is your priority - along with proper nutrition and physical fitness - whiskey may be the supplement to take to avoid getting sick. Festival season is around the corner and there is no time to waste laying in bed!
