There is no time of year more associated with celebrating than New Year’s Eve. If author Charles Lamb was right in saying that “New Year’s Day is every man’s birthday”, then New Year’s Eve is one hell of a birthday party. There is no denying that the festive season usually entails a large amount of alcohol consumption (guilty), but for an occasion like New Year’s Eve, we strongly believe your choice of tipple should be carefully considered and chosen to match the status of such an evening. We have created a list of new-year’s-worthy beverages with which you can welcome 2017.
The Introductory Drink: Bepin de Eto Prosecco Superiore DOCG (Conegliano Valdobbiadene) Magnum Edition
Bepin de Eto’s Prosecco Superiore DOCG is the perfect introductory drink of choice. In order to kick start the New Year’s Eve celebrations, something elegant and delicious is called for. The DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Garantita) label tells you that this is a quality wine, but the balanced fruity flavours and floral notes speak for themselves. What’s more, the stunning cut glass MAGNUM bottle will definitely make a lasting first impression.
The Dancing Juice: Cocktails (‘Porn Star Martini’, ‘The Fizzy Tarte’, ‘Margarita’, ‘Cosmopolitan’)
The party is in full flow and people need a FUN cocktail to match. A ‘Porn Star Martini’ or a ‘Margarita’ fits the bill perfectly, as they boast punchy flavours and decadent combinations which is fitting for an occasion like New Year’s Eve. With cocktails such as these, the dance floor will be full in no time…
The Countdown: Champagne
Other than cheers and well-wishes, the only other sound that should be heard at the strike of midnight is that of a popping cork! New Year’s Eve deserves a superior bottle, but with several prestige Champagnes on the market, superiority is based on personal preference. So whether you enjoy the intense yet delicate flavours of Cristal, or the fresh aroma and fully body of Armand De Brignac Brut, indulge in a bottle that is far from the everyday (unless you’re Jay-Z).
The Night Cap: Crazy Nut
The night is winding down, but you’re not quite ready to go home. The solution? An extravagant dessert-style drink with coffee flavours and a sweet hit. With Frangelico, Amaretto, Baileys, half cream and a dash of sugar syrup, this creamy concoction will give you that second wind you so desire.
