Want to live past 100? Forget the healthy eating and endless hours on the treadmill, just head to your local wine store and pick up some bubbles.  At least, that’s the advice from the staff at Southlands Care Home, in Harrogate, England, who claim Champagne is the secret to one of their resident’s great health.

Born in 1911, Southland resident Dorothy Flowers celebrated her 108th birthday this week. Flowers credits her exceptionally long life to drinking Champagne and a love of horse racing.

“Dorothy loves company, so she’ll sit with us at the reception desk each day. She’s such a regular that she’s got her own drawer, which we keep full of chocolate buttons,” Helene Ballinger, the resident manager at Southlands, told Yahoo Style UK.

“Her real secret for longevity, though, has to be Champagne. It’s the only thing we ever see her finish a glass of,” Ballinger added.

Flowers received an astounding 654 cards from around the world wishing her a happy birthday and of course, multiple bottles of Champagne.

Forget diamonds: It seems like bubbles are a girl’s best friend.
