Christmas comes with a lot of excitement – carols, concerts, festivals, parties, lots of eating and – yeah, you’re right – drinking.
As the parties heat up, more and more people will turn to the bottle in need of having a good time but there will always be the question of what to drink, where and the right time.
While we don’t encourage you to over-indulge and go on a spree of binge drinking, we can always offer some helpful tips on what you should be drinking this Christmas.
The official drink of celebration, Champagnes are a must have this Christmas. A flute of champagne in hand brings sparkles into your holiday mood.
You can settle for the classic Veuve Clicquot Brut with its attractive yellow label sure to add excitement to your mood or go for the sweet tasting Moet & Chandon Nectar Rose Imperial.
If you are the one for vintage champagne, the Dom Perignon P2 2000 or Dom Perignon 2009 Brut is a classy choice. If you’re looking to party with it, the emerald-green light of the Dom Perignon Luminous is very much the cream of the crop.
If you don’t have the big budget that champagnes demand, you can always switch to a nice bottle of sparkling wine.
Luc Belaire Luxe has a premium taste and luxurious bottle that sends your mood lighting up the skies like Christmas fireworks. Then there is the darling Veuve Du Vernay Ice Rose that not only sweetens the palate but also beautifies your table with its unique white and pink bottle. Andre and Martini are also other great choices.
If Champagnes brought a sparkling new meaning to wins, Cognacs have given a whole new identity to how we see brandy, thanks to the French.
Be it dinner, a party, a concert or a simple laid back sit-out with friends, cognac is a unique choice for all occasions. The classic Hennessy VS and Hennessy VSOP are always ready options and if you buy from Drinks.ng using VISA QR, you get FREE mixers, party cups and ice along with it. Martell Blue Swift is another cool choice especially since a bottle purchased from Drinks.ng gets you either a FREE Bluetooth speaker of a 24 Apparel Hat.
All thanks to the Irish and the Scots for blessing us with whisky, now we can fight the cold evenings of Christmas with a good old scotch like Glenmorangie Original or the all-new Johnnie Walker Aged 18 Years.
