4 Drinks Per Day Could Get You To 101…Go Grandma

My new hero is a Staten Island woman who just turned 101 and whose recipe for longevity includes booze, booze and more booze. Meet Nancy Lamperti, who was born in 1912 in Italy, and came to the U.S. in 1927.

Her lunch consists of a small sandwich plus a banana, and two glasses of Paisano wine, that’s followed by a nap at 1 p.m. At 4 p.m., she indulges in a small glass of Southern Comfort, and at 6 p.m., she enjoys a can of Budweiser. At 10 p.m., she’s fast asleep.

But let’s get back to that booze. Some studies show women who drink moderate alcohol throughout the week stay healthier as they age than non-drinking women.

Who am I to argue with a 101 year old? God bless you, Nancy.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to run to Hy Vee Liquor… for Grandma, of course.
