Last night, having just finished setting up for a KMWC wine tasting, a robin appeared and perched on the edge of the ice bucket. Look at the picture above! Could not have been more Christmassy. Anyway, having spent much of last week talking about not drinking on various radio shows to coincide with the launch of my new book (more on that in a mo), I’m back on wine. Specifically, what we’re going to drink on Christmas Day and beyond. There seem to be more champagne deals around this Christmas than ever, but not all that sparkles is gold (I know that should read glitter but go with it). So I’ve picked out a failsafe sparkling option this week, along with a white and red wine to go with the Big Feast. Plus there’s a cocktail that takes seconds to make, perfect for kicking off a party. And for any drivers/non-drinkers give them something from my new book, Teetotal Tipples, out now! See below for details on the drinks and in the meantime, here’s wishing you a very merry Christmas. See you on the flip side.
