Who drinks a glass of wine as a health supplement?

There is an ongoing buzz about this. :drunken:

It isn't necessarily vegan though. :pottytrain3:

Funny, I decided to skip the alcoholic beverage and have a mix of grape juices (in a wine glass for something fancy), but now this juice is magically turning into sparkling wine on me. It didn't tend to do this until recently, so maybe the coincidence was that lately I've had an open pitcher of beets being pickled next to the open pitcher of juice, and supposedly fermenting bacteria are present in vinegar. I don't know for sure yet, as I haven't tried it on purpose, but this might be a way of making the bubbly vegan wine juice: add a little vinegar to the pitcher and see if it carbonates itself (in a few days... or that was because I didn't rinse the pitcher out between batches). I'm pretty sure the alcohol content is lower than most wines, whatever happened there (oh, I know, it was the champagne fairy). :drunken:

Hmm, well I didn't have to do anything for the next batch to follow suit (even though the pickled beets are now covered in there). I just left what might be the "mother of vinegar" sprouting in the bottom of the pitcher and mixed the juice like normal. In two days the whole thing was carbonated again. What I could confirm more directly was that grape juice can absorb things around it in the fridge. I had just added a bunch of fresh green peppers that were sitting around it on a shelf, and after a day in there I could taste a hint of them in the juice too. Well it doesn't taste like vinegar... I guess that process takes longer than me drinking a pitcher (and think it goes from being more like sparkling juice to something of a dessert wine by then). :cherry:

However strange that is (if not a wild yeast in the grape juice), at least it doesn't seem as mysterious to me as wines that may not be vegan, and I like wine mixed with juice anyway. I think this counts as less than moderate drinking too, as some of the health risks include having one glass a day (other than that from the champagne fairy methinks). Your mileage may vary, so I wouldn't want to recommend that anyone else make something like this, in case of food poisoning, but that usually occurs in less acidic and/or unrefrigerated produce. One glass doesn't seem to affect me, even like drinking too much fresh juice could. Anecdotally I feel less healthy when I wake up hours after drinking a glass of wine than this, which doesn't seem to hang over. Good stuff, is a toast in order?
Here's to a champagne taste on a beer budget or something like that (when beer used to be cheap). :occasion5:
