Impress guests with THE must-have party season Prosecco
The holiday season is on the way and you know what that means – a packed Christmas calendar full of festive brunches, office parties and old pal get togethers.
But if you are hosting your own soirée, how do you ensure that your bash is the one to remember? Answer: with plenty of bubbles, which is why Freixenet Prosecco is the tipple we’re championing this season.
Made from the finest Glera grapes in Italy’s Prosecco region of Veneto, this pale golden bubbly feels clean and fresh on the palate, boasting tones of zesty lemon, crisp green apple and sharp grapefruit.
It also comes presented in a a rather chic cut-glass bottle that’ll more than impressive on your festive table. And with over 100 years of sparkling winemaking expertise behind them, we think it’s fair to say that Freixenet knows how to create a premium Prosecco that’ll be the toast of your Christmas celebrations.
And don’t just take our word for it. Freixenet — sponsor of the #MarieClaireVerified Influencer Power List — has shared some pretty nifty party hacks from an exclusively curated group of influencers to help give your party a pro-fo finish.
Check out these influencer-approved upgrades – sure to give Freixenet VIP status on that Christmas guestlist:
GIVE YOUR TABLE EDGE
‘Print a photograph of each guest in black and white, then attach each shot to a wine glass using a mini gold bulldog clip so people can see where they are sitting. Tie napkins with pink twine, and tuck neon pink haberdashery feathers into the bow. Who says Christmas has to be traditional?’
CREATE A COOL SHARING MENU
‘Serving food on shared platters is the best way to get everyone mingling. It’s also the perfect excuse to make the meal look extra special. Pay attention to presentation and create a talking point with a luxury dessert that will make your guests gasp.’
INVEST IN GREAT GLASSWARE
‘Use fancy cut-glass crystal saucers to serve Prosecco and keep it simple when it comes to decor. A floral centrepiece in gold and metallic shades is perfect teamed with lots of pillar candles. If you want to go the extra mile though, dip pomegranate seeds in glitter and scatter liberally across the table.’
SHAKE A CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL
‘I like to keep everyone’s Prosecco glass topped up throughout the night, and end with a festive goodnight cocktail. This year I’m serving a white Christmas mojito, with rum, coconut rum, coconut cream, fresh mint, pomegranate and lime. Make sure you save some mint and pomegranate to finish.’
