THEY may have been on the shelves since February, but now is the time one can truly indulge in Easter treats without having to feel guilty or make excuses.
Hot Cross Buns almost feel healthy if you ignore the sugar and don’t add butter, but it’s the spectacular packaging of the eggs which catches the eye of every chocolate lover.
The dizzying array of colours and designs are so much fun, and it’s no wonder egg hunts remain popular, bringing out the youthful competitiveness in all of us.
These days I’d be more inclined to elbow someone out of the way for a glass of bubbly than an Easter Egg, but I find it much easier to just make sure there’s enough of the stuff to go around.
And this Easter I’ll add Brown Brothers Prosecco Rose to the buffet table.
It meets the brief when it comes to eye-catching colour, both inside and out.
The limited edition bottle was designed in collaboration with the RMIT School of Fashion and Textiles.
When the cork is released it pours with vigour, leaving a white, powder-puff like cap for few seconds over the blush pink wine.
It has a delicate aroma with a hint of musky rose and strawberry, before the light fruitiness of the bubbly, berry-tinged liquid that leans ever so slightly toward sweetness before the drier finish.
This Prosecco Rose doesn’t need to be partnered with food – but it’s versatile enough for both savoury and sweet eats.
Which is enough to make every bunny smile.
