FREEZE YOUR WINE

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - PRO TIP -

LOWER DIS­EASE RISK

If you love a lit­tle an­tiox­i­dant-packed vino, cheers to this: 150ml a day may help re­duce odds of heart dis­ease, type-2 di­a­betes, cer­tain can­cers and Alzheimer’s dis­ease. But warm-weather sip­ping is tricky: hot weather plus de­hy­dra­tion as­so­ci­ated with al­co­hol can af­fect blood pres­sure and make you dizzy.

PRO TIP Freeze your favourite wine in ice trays (about 15ml per cube), sug­gests nu­tri­tion­ist Ja­clyn Lon­don. Then pop one or two into a small glass of wine, which will make your drink last longer, or add a few cubes to sparkling wa­ter to keep you hy­drated and hang­over-free. Go easy, though, be­cause more than 150ml a day is linked to in­creased dis­ease risk.
