When you’re in work and it feels like the week is never going to end, we know exactly what you’re thinking.
‘Why the hell am I not drinking a cocktail right now?’
And why not, eh? It’s totally fine that you want a little dutch courage to help you take on the week.
And if you’re not convinced enough by that totally contrived bit of reasoning, here are a few actual reasons why you’re body is TOTALLY down for you kicking off the week with a cocktail.
Enjoy. You can thank us later.
It’s what your heart wants. Literally
More than 100 studies show that moderate drinkers experience up to a 40% reduced risk of heart disease.
Yeah. We’re not kidding. It’s all on this Harvard School of Public Health web page. Y’know, the fancy American uni full of ridiculously smart people who know what they’re on about.
The key word here is ‘moderate’. Because heavy drinking obviously won’t do your body wonders.
Some of your five a day
Most cocktails contain a fruity element, and some contain a lot more than others.
Take our Mango & Strawberry Colada for example. It’s packed with so much real fruit that it’s a surprise your doctor doesn’t recommend you have it for breakfast every morning.
Now that would be a fun doctor to have. A highly irresponsible, but fun doctor.
It’s the elixir of life
We’ve all got that one mate who smugly abstains from alcohol to make them feel like some kind of eternal spirit being from the 6th dimension.
Well, now you can throw some of that smug back in their face, thanks to this actual proper study that suggests that alcohol drinkers tend to outlive their non-drinking counterparts.
Let’s see how all that ‘clear mindedness’ treats them when they’re six feet under and you’re not (okay, got a bit harsh there, but whatever).
Old age. We’re all going to experience it one day. It’s all part of the circle of life.
The trouble is, wrinkly skin isn’t the worst of it. It’s the ‘crazy old person’ aspect that’s a bit scary. You know. The part where the line between your underwear and the toilet starts to blur in a very bad way.
But don’t worry. Alcohol saves the day again. Studies have shown that moderate drinkers are 23% less likely to develop cognitive impairment in old age.
That’s the kind of fact that makes you feel young again
It makes you better at dancing
Okay, we haven’t conducted any official studies per se, but are you gonna try and deny how incredible your dance moves are after you’ve had a few?
Or maybe it just feels that way. Hmmm….
Well, it turns out your heart wants a cocktail in more than just a metaphorical sense after all.
On the other hand, it looks like it would be kind of irresponsible of you if you don’t…err…medicate yourself after work.
Especially since you can get 2 cocktails for the price of 1 at our Happy Hour from 5 – 9pm, Sunday to Friday.
