Whiskey-Why Is It The Preferred Alcohol?

Recently, the medical journal SPRINGER published an article that examined the various types of bacteria that can be found in ice, specifically bar ice. Your favorite bars ice, unfortunately, carries several infectious types of bacteria-31 species, in fact.

That’s the bad news.

Some of the major bacterias included well known Bacillus, known for food poisoning; Staphylococcus, responsible for Staph infections and Pseudomonas, which causes lung and skin infections.

The researchers goal was to find out if the infected ice’s bacteria could be killed by various drinks that we consume. Vodka killed none of the bacteria. Coca Cola did well, killing the bacteria Bacillus and Pseudomonas. But, whiskey killed them all.

Thought that pointing out this study’s results should make you realize that your system survives with the bacteria in your drinks, at least in the majority of cases. If you are one that gets sick after drinking fluids with bar ice, maybe whiskey is your answer. If whiskey is not your answer on its own, whiskey and coke or tonic are your solutions.
