The Dangers of Lemons
Oh dear, as an avid G&T drinker I am ungemused to see that Nanny is fretful about the use of lemons in cocktails.
It seems that according to some "research" originally published in the Journal of Environmental Health in 2007, and recently republished by Elle, the skins of lemons harbour all sorts of microbes (courtesy of the barman's/barmaid's sweaty hands).
Seemingly almost 70% of the drinks ordered in the test of 21 bars in the USA produced some sort of microbial growth, from 25 different microbial species.
Well, I have yet to die from a dodgy lemon slice in my G&T. Thus I will continue to have ice and a slice, and risk it!
