According to an article I read on Britain’s Decanter.com yesterday, Champagne might be the secret to a long life.
UK crime writer John Mortimer says a glass of Champagne every morning is the secret to a long life.
The 85-year-old novelist, whose most celebrated creation, Horace
Rumpole, used to drink ‘Chateau Thames Embankment’ red wine at his
local wine bar, revealed his drinking habits to UK broadsheet The
Guardian at the weekend.
The writer added that he was meant to take high-protein drinks
throughout the day but that he distrusted doctors, saying each one told
him something different.
‘So I stick to Champagne – not very grand Champagne,’ he said. ‘I
drink it every morning, and that is the secret of a long life.’
As Decanter is quick to point out, one small glass of bubbly at 12% AbV is half of the UK’s daily recommended amount for "sensible drinking."
Hmm … Champagne every morning. I think I could do that.
