POP the corks, it’s party time!
But did you know that more than a third of us have admitted to embarrassing ourselves on the dancefloor after a drink?
Avoid a red face and a hangover by sticking to low or no-booze alternatives instead . . .
HEADACHE-FREE GIN: G&Ts can now be low or no-alcohol as many top brands are selling their own booze-free versions of the spirit.
Order a 70cl bottle of Tanqueray 0.0% alcohol-free spirit, reduced from £17.50 to £14 or the much-loved pink gin alternative, Gordon’s Premium Pink alcohol-free spirit, which was £16, now £13, for 70cl, both from Thebar.com.
EXPRESS-NO MARTINI: No one likes to miss out on cocktails at Christmas and you don’t have to with this Seedlip Spice 94 recipe.
Get a bottle from Waitrose for £18, saving £8.50 on the normal £26.50 price.
Pour 50ml of the non-alcoholic spirit and a double shot espresso over ice and add 15ml sugar syrup (make your own by heating sugar and water before cooling) and pour into a martini glass.
WINE NOT SKIP THE HANGOVER?: Try the popular Fre Merlot Alcohol-Removed Wine and Sutter Home Chardonnay Alcohol-Removed Wine, both £3.20 a bottle at Asda, in stores only.
For something a little bit more festive, grab some Eisberg Mulled Alcohol Free Wine which is usually £3 a bottle, but is currently available on offer for £2.50 with a Tesco Clubcard.
HOLD ON A ’SECCO: Raise a toast with a glass of Sainsbury’s Nozeco, reduced from £3.75 to £3.50.
Or save a little more with the 0.5% Co-op Nosseco Sparkling, only £3 a bottle.
Both taste incredibly similar to the real thing.
SLOE IT DOWN: Go totally booze-free and make a “no-sloe motion” cocktail from Cawston Press Sparkling Rhubarb and Sparkling Elderflower, both now £2.50 per bottle at Ocado and garnish with a lemon zest twist for a delicious sparkling cocktail.
