Trying to have a healthier night out on the town? Given the research on the antioxidants in red wine and other darker kinds of booze, going darker could be a way to add some health benefits to your cocktail. But be careful too — darker drinks have higher concentrations of cogeners, toxins that are created during the fermentation process that can contribute to a monster hangover. To avoid feeling like a gremlin the morning after, switch in some lighter brews (and drink in moderation!).
Do It Today: Dark-colored beverages have more antioxidants than lighter-hued drinks, but they also have more toxic chemicals that can cause killer hangovers.
The right drink (alcoholic and otherwise) for every situation.
