FREEZE YOUR WINE
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.
