You may have noticed (especially if you follow me over on Twitter) that I am partial to a glass of wine; my favourite thing to do is to cook a nice meal and share a glass of wine or two with friends. It is difficult for me and the hubby to share a bottle of wine as he doesn’t drink at all, so when I was asked to give Eisberg Alcohol-Free Wine, I was more than up for it – could this be what we have been waiting for?
“Eisberg is made in the same way as your favourite wine, with the alcohol taken out at the end so it’s great for family parties, designated drivers, or just for a midweek treat without the worry about a bad head the next day. Also, at fewer than 34 calories a glass”
I will be honest, I was worried about how it would taste as we have tried non-alcoholic alternatives before and they have not always tasted great, and more than often even if they are nice they don’t taste like the wine/beer they are an alternative to. So, we thought we would make a lovely meal to try the wine with – my favourite – Fajitas!
We settled now and the taste test began! Much to our surprise this non-alcoholic tasted like wine! It was nice to have a glass with dinner, we decided to follow it up with a Mocktail – the Gingerly Sip! This was lush, really refreshing and really tasty, we will definitely be having that again!
Ingredients: 100ml Eisberg Riesling, ½ lemon, 1tsp of sugar, Cubed ice, Ginger ale (and if you wish to Garnish: Twist of orange and a Cinnamon stick)
All you have to do is to Pour 100ml of alcohol-free Riesling into a short glass, Add the juice of ½ a lemon, 1 tsp of sugar, Ginger Ale and lots of cubed ice and then Garnish. The next step is to drink it!
If you are looking for an alternative to your bottle of wine for a party or a glass in the garden to relax this summer, this is definitely an option for you! A great option for those who want wine but don’t want alcohol!). It comes in White and Red (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rosé and Riesling) and is available from Morrisons, Waitrose, Tesco, Asda, Nisa Local, Londis, Budgens, Spar, Ocado, Bargain Booze, Slurp.co.uk
