  • Hello, summer

    Prosecco is the drink that tastes like summer nights and celebrations and after news that a prosecco shortage now won’t be happening (phew!), there’s some even better prosecco news on the horizon: Prosecco now has a light alternative to keep those liquid calories in check.

    While prosecco definitely isn’t as calorific as most other alcoholic beverages, the average bottle comes with between 12 and 17 grams of sugar per litre, with some even racking up to 32 grams. So, how to solve the conundrum of a lighter alternative to everyone’s favourite tipple? Enter ‘Skinny Prosecco’.

    Drinking wine before bed helps you lose weight

    So-called ‘Skinny Prosecco’ is the brain child of luxury drink specialist Thompson and Scott and it has launched an organic version of the drink that has only 7 grams of sugar per litre, and 67 calories per glass.

    CEO Amanda Scott said she created the waistline friendly wine as a reaction to all the sugar that’s currently in drinks.

    ‘I was raised sugar free by a health-conscious mother who taught me that sugar was the devil. It turns out – she was right,’ she said.

    ‘When I grew up, I fell in love with champagne and was compelled to create a Skinny Wines portfolio for those who want to drink something beautifully crafted but with the benefit of no/low added sugar.’

    And before you go thinking that you’ll have to fork out for the privilege, Selfridges are selling it for just £17.99 a bottle.
