‘Tis the season to be jolly, and as it’s us, drink plenty of fizz too, of course! As Prosecco is officially the nation’s favourite drink of choice for celebrating, be a little creative and you can spread the fizzy, bubbly love throughout the whole day, and why wouldn’t you? It is Christmas after all.
Breakfast of champions
What better way to kick off the Christmas Day festivities than with a Buck’s Fizz at breakfast? Substitute the traditional Champagne for Prosecco, top up with fresh orange juice and you’re ready to see what the big guy in red has left under the tree.
Christmas is no time for watching your calorie intake, so a bowl of Prosecco infused truffles close to hand is perfectly acceptable for munching while you’re busy watching the Call The Midwife Christmas special. Treat yourself to Prestat’s collection of dark, milk and pink chocolate truffles that are ‘enlivened’ with Prosecco. Available from John Lewis
They are a thing, we promise! And do you know what? They’re actually not bad at all! We recommend Tesco Finest’s Prosecco and elderberry and M&S’s classic winter berries and Prosecco – with a sprinkling of little gold stars, what’s not to love?
Liven things up after Christmas dinner and make sure that nobody’s asleep in the armchair with a game of Prosecco Pong. Exactly the same rules as good old Beer Pong but with your favourite fizz instead. We love the one from Lakeland.
If you need a break from all the eating and drinking find a quiet corner and relax with a Prosecco candle. Made with natural soy wax and fragranced using the tasting notes from wine, this candle, from Vineyard Candles infuses white grapes with grapefruit and rose and is poured into a repurposed wine bottle.
The Queen’s Speech
OK, we know that we shouldn’t but let’s instigate a drinking game for the duration of the Queen’s Speech. Glasses topped up with fizz at the ready… Take a swig every time Her Majesty says ‘one’, take a drink when she looks serious, take two drinks when she smiles. Take three drinks when she mentions the Duke of Edinburgh and hop on one leg and finish the glass if she discusses Harry and Megan!
We haven’t thought of a way of infusing the turkey with Prosecco yet, we’ll work on that one for next year folks. Merry Christmas one and all. Cheers!
