But does it work? Only one way to find out, Linda *pops bottle*
Finally some good news. A Lidl hangover free Prosecco is on the way – and just in time for all the terrible choices of party season.
The supermarket’s Organic Prosecco Spumante will be released this Thursday, costing £7.99 a bottle.
The drink has been dubbed ‘hangover-free’ thanks to its lower levels of sulphites, a term for the sulfur dioxide preservatives widely used in wine to keep it fresh, but which can also leave many people with a nasty headache-y feeling when they wake up the following day.
‘We’ve all had that shocking wine hangover. This is sometimes attributed to the sulphite preservatives used in wine to keep them fresher for longer,’ Lidl’s master of wine, Richard Bampfield, told Metro.
‘Generally, organic wine producers use a lower level of sulphites in the production process, which means they are less likely to contribute to hangovers.’
If the Lidl hangover free Prosecco does work for you, it might be worth buying into the growing number of other organic or natural wines on the market that are also low in sulphites.
But like everything that sounds too good to be true, there’s a catch. Preservatives aren’t the only reason you wake up feeling terrible after too much wine. The diuretic alcohol, high levels of sugar and feelings of shame after doing a sexy break dance for your married colleague John that boozing involves can also leave you feeling like you’ve been dropped out of a window the following day.
Still, it’s well worth a test-run…
