When you've run out of pivo...

Back in Brno the kids were fond of drinking a fruity cocktail- strawberry juice and Bozkov rum (jahoda a bozkov!). A friend recently emailed me with the news that it turns out that drink is actually healthy! The article states, "According to new research published in the Journal Of The Science Of Food And Agriculture, the antioxidant capacity of strawberries can be significantly enhanced when they are combined with ethanol, the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits. Those antioxidants attack free-radicals that can cause cancer, arthritis and heart disease". So, whenever pivo is in short supply, reach for second best: strawberry juice + hard liquor. It could prevent a plethora of diseases!

**Just to note, pivo does have its fair share of nutritional value as well. You can find Vitamin B, carbohydrates, proteins, and minerals such as phosphoric acid.
