10 Fun Things To Do With Alcohol Free Prosecco!
Make ‘Ocsober’ a sparkling event!
There’s no stopping the popularity of Prosecco. It has seemingly become the new face of
sparkling wine, as it’s approachable, drinkable and a real party starter for any occasion.
Part of the reason for its success is that it’s not as complex as Champagne, more accessible and made with different grape varieties, using traditional wine-making methods. Although it’s dry with a little sweetness, the flavour profile appears more rounded and generous.
Prosecco is adaptable when it comes to food pairing too and tastes great with a wide range of dishes from different cuisines. Not many wines can be served before a meal and work well with the main course, but Prosecco somehow manages to bridge the gap. It’s an ‘Aperitivo’ wine as much a match for Modern Asian dishes as it is for Italian fare.
This ‘Ocsober’ you’ll enjoy the versatility of zero alcohol Prosecco thanks to Plus & Minus Wines. We all know Prosecco is a versatile drink and a superb mixer that brings to life everything from an Aperol Spritz to a Mimosa. Here’s ten ways to enjoy Prosecco - minus the alcohol.
