“Really Great Service! Called last minute on Friday evening about 6:30pm to pick up drinks I just bought. They close at 6pm or so but the representative on the phone (a kind lady) made sure we got our drinks even though we got there about 7:35pm (last minute rushing). They were very accommodating even offering a drink while the car was coming to pick up. Really great service! Thanks –Idowu”

Did You Know Moderate Drinking Makes You Live Longer than Exercise?

Drinking_Alcohol_and_Exercise | www.drinks.ng

Regular exercise is said to make one live to a ripe old age, but it seems to drink alcohol trumps what exercise is capable of.

A recent long-term study has found that regular moderate intake of alcohol will help you make it to your 90’s better than exercise can.

The team of scientists from the University of California led by neurologist Claudia Kawas tracked 1,700 nonagenarians enrolled in the 90+ Study that began in 2003 to explore impacts of daily habits on longevity.

According to The Independent, researchers found that subjects who drank two glasses of beer or wine a day were 18 percent less likely to die prematurely. On the other hand, participants who exercised 15 to 45 minutes a day, cut the same risk by 11 percent.

“I have no explanation for it, but I do firmly believe that modest drinking improves longevity,” Kawas stated over the weekend at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual conference in Austin, Texas.

Asides the modest drinking, other factors found to boost longevity included weight. Participants who were slightly overweight — but not obese — cut their odds of an early death by 3 percent.

“It’s not bad to be skinny when you’re young but it’s very bad to be skinny when you’re old,” Kawas noted in her address.

More so, participants who kept busy with a daily hobby two hours a day were 21 percent less likely to suffer an early death, while those who drank two cups of coffee a day reduced the risk by 10 percent.

Further study is needed to determine how habits impact longevity beyond people’s genetic makeups.

How Alcohol Makes You More Creative

Alcohol and Creativity | www.drinks.ng

Whether in form of business innovation, artistic creations, scientific experiments, creativity is something we all crave for – even more than alcohol.

Often times, we engage in certain rituals in the hope to boost our creativity. Meditation, sleep, exercise and alcohol are some of the means through which we try to bring our creativity to life.

We don’t know much about the others, but alcohol certainly is a catalyst for being more creative.

How does alcohol boost creativity?

The answer certainly revolves around the effect of alcohol on the brain. It loosens the brain’s controlling instincts, thus allowing you spontaneous thoughts to infiltrate your head. It is one of such thoughts that births a new idea or solves a persistent problem – creatively.

Getting alcohol into our system usually leads to ‘executive functioning’ in our brain, processes that involve focus and planning. This comes about through an altered state of consciousness induced by alcohol. No wonder people come up with the most amazing thoughts when they have a glass or two of wine, whiskey or cognac.

However, the underlying factor is that getting overly drunk does nothing in getting us to think creatively. Getting tipsy is what triggers the creativity.

Scientists Even Have A Proof

Scientific research has corroborated the fact that a drink can help us become more creative in our thoughts and actions as it frees up the brain to think in a different way.

It doesn’t immediately turn you into Picasso or Einstein, but the equivalent of a pint of beer or a small glass of wine was proven by Austrian scientists to help in unleashing creativity.

‘We wanted to do this study because alcohol is so linked with creativity and great writers like Ernest Hemingway,’ said lead author Dr Mathias Benedek, from the University of Graz in Austria.

‘Previous research has found almost half of the great writers had a history of drinking.

‘We found that a small drink can indeed help with certain aspects of creativity, although it may make hard, focused work more difficult.

‘So it might well work for someone who is sitting down to do creative writing or brainstorming ideas in a boardroom.’

The Research

Seventy participants were given a drink of either beer or non-alcohol beer, which they were unable to distinguish between. Half of the participants were given a 0.5% lager, while the other half were asked to drink a 5.2% beer, which they weren’t able to distinguish between.

They were then given a word association task, which included determining one word linking the three words Swiss, blue and cake. The answer is ‘cheese’ and the second group, who had the stronger beer, scored an average of 6/10 in the test. The other half of drinkers scored an average of 4/10.

The alcohol-drinkers also exceeded in a creative thinking task, in which they had to suggest alternative uses for tyres with “a swing” deemed one of the most creative answers.

5 Myths About Whiskey Debunked

Whiskey or Whisky | www.drinks.ng

There are several myths surrounding one of the world’s best spirit drinks – whiskey. From biased views like it being an old man’s drink to which is better between blended and single malts, the myths keep piling up.

However, whiskey is a beautiful drink. It is meant to be savoured as long as one is of the legal drinking age and has the purchasing power.

Here are 5 Whiskey Myths You Should Knock Off

 

Go for flavour, not age

Many people are quick to believe that the older the whiskey, the better. That is not the case as different whiskey is more particular about flavour and style, than age. The flavour is made for you to enjoy; the style, for you to appreciate. The age does bring a unique taste to it, but it still boils down to flavour and style

 

Drink as you prefer

Unnecessary rules like not adding a splash of water, don’t serve on ice, and drinking it straight not dirty, should not stop one from enjoying his whiskey. The drink is made for your enjoyment without any particular interest as to how you decide to. These rules are a whole big myth about the drink.

Single malt is better than blended whiskey

No! None is better than the other. Single malt refers to whiskey that comes from one distillery, while blended whiskey uses a single malt as its base, but it is blended with grain whiskies from various distilleries. Blended whiskey only came about because of the commercial surge of whiskey, and the fact that single malt follows the traditional pot still distillation process does not make the taste superior. What is most important is the person drinking the whiskey and the his/her preference. So be it single malt or blended whiskey, pour it, drink it and savour the experience.

You cannot pair with food

There is no constitution that says that. Just because whiskey is hot drink does not mean it cannot be paired with food as many are misled to understand. It is not only wine that you can pair with food, whiskey can go with that special delicacy as well.

5 Truths You Never Knew About Alcohol

Truths_About_Alcohol | www.drinks.ng

Like every other aspect of human activity, drinking alcohol comes with its own myths which people have come to believe as truths.

There are some who believe that eating before drinking will reduce the level of intoxication. There are also others who feel that brown spirits cause more severe hangovers than their clear counterparts. Don’t cling too much to these myths as alcohol is alcohol and will knock you off anyways if you take beyond your limit.

We are all about responsible drinking, and while you are at it, here are some truths about alcohol we thought you should have at your fingertips.

5 Truths About Alcohol

Coffee Does Not Sober You Up

Don’t go with the myth that drinking coffee will help knock away your hangover. To sober up, the alcohol has to metabolize in your system. You will have to wait a few hours for that to happen. What caffeine actually does is to heighten your senses, causing you to appear more sober while still intoxicated.

Beer Belly Comes from too Much Beer

This myth is older than most of us started drinking, that does not make it true though. Generally drinking too much of alcohol will lead to more calories which results in weight gain. This means that adding a few more pounds around your midriff is not entirely down to the beer you have been drinking. It can be the glass of wine from Adeolu’s birthday party, or shots of tequila you had at Angela’s engagement party last night. In any case, there is no need to single out beer as the sole cause of a “beer belly.” Calories can come from any beverage, even non-alcoholic ones.

Adding Energy Drinks to Alcohol Will Reduce Intoxication

Hell no! Energy drinks work contain caffeine, and the effect of it will only give you a hyper feeling. It does not reduce the alcohol volume in your liquor or slow down your intoxication process by any means. Adding energy drinks to alcohol, in fact, leads to what is called “wide awake drunkenness.” The stimulants in the energy drink gives you a sobering effect while the alcohol takes its course. Medical experts advise that energy drink and alcohol mixed together is no good for the human system.

Alcohol Destroys Brain Cells

The extremely smart ones are scared by this myth. Thus, they choose to shy away from alcohol rather than indulge. This myth is completely untrue as alcohol does not kill off the entire brain cells. It only disrupts the flow of communication between neurons, alters their structure, and causes some of the impairment we experience when drunk. Now you know your brain cell is safe, it is no reason for you to drink irresponsibly.

Dark Spirits Cause More Hangover Than Lighter-Coloured Ones

Alcohol is alcohol, and once you take too much, be set for a severe hangover in the morning. This means that choosing vodka or gin over brandy or whiskey will not help you avoid hangover. It is true that congeners, which are by-products of alcohol fermentation and a leading cause of hangover, are much more present in dark liquors than clear ones. However, the secret to not being hungover is drinking responsibly, not avoiding one liquor for the other.
