What to drink instead of wine and champagne?
If you usually drink wine and champagne, what can you drink instead? There are several non-alcoholic and de-alcoholised options available, we list some of the best picks.
Carl Jung Sparkling White Wine
Carl Jung is a German winery, who have been making de-alcoholised wines since 1908. They have a great reputation, and the wines are widely available. Sarah Stacey in the Daily Mail wrote: “Medium-dry and refreshing with peachy notes, this was a clear winner. Great for parties.”
This sparkling wine is available from Delicious Drinks Shop (@Deliciousdrinks), and is priced at £6.95 per bottle.
Torres Natureo Muscat (0.5% alcohol)
Our favourite reviewer Drychick describes this dealcoholised wine as distinguished. She says: “This is good enough to fool dinner party guests for the real thing. Lots of flavour, pleasant green apple aroma. Keeps in the fridge longer than full-proof wine. Enjoy with fish and white meat, white pasta dishes and British cheddar”.
£5.99 from Waitrose.
