Health nuts in bars?

The children have been playing with grown-up stuff again. Alcohol has gone on a health kick, according to a story in the Sunday NY Times. We're talking way beyond little green pistachios.

Consider these trendsetting new vodka drinks: low-calorie sugar- and aspartame-free airforce Nurtisoda-brand sodas -- each containing a day's dose of vitamins C, E, B6, and B12.

Or something called the Joie de VeeV, made with fresh strawberry, lime, mint and a dash of Splenda.

Have you tried the Ginger Smash? It's made with fresh cranberries and muddled fresh ginger. Muddled?

Not me. I'm not much for fancy drinks. I'll stick with the old favorite: Metamucil and vodka.

And I think I'll have another.
