A spec­tac­u­lar fam­ily fun day to cel­e­brate chil­dren’s char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

Be­fore you choke on your pork scratch­ings, don’t panic; we’re not ac­tu­ally ad­vis­ing you to en­ter your lo­cal and shock ev­ery­one in­side by or­der­ing a pint of wine. That would be berserk.

A su­per-clever tip from food writer and owner of The Pear Café in Bris­tol Elly Cur­shen (also the au­thor of the hit new 5:2 diet recipe book Fast Days & Feast Days), the ‘pint of wine’ trick ac­tu­ally in­volves or­der­ing a small glass of white wine (Sau­vi­gnon Blanc is our par­tic­u­lar favourite here) and then ask­ing the bar­tender to pour it into a pint glass topped up with ice and soda wa­ter, cre­at­ing the most de­li­ciously re­fresh­ing white wine spritzer.

Not only will this make a small glass of wine last heaps longer than usual - which is es­pe­cially handy if you’re so­cial­is­ing with pint drinkers but don’t want to keep beat­ing them to the fin­ish line – it will also en­sure you drink the ad­vised large glass of wa­ter per al­co­holic unit, thus keep­ing your­self won­der­fully hy­drated and staving off the dreaded morn­ing-af­ter, ‘dry brain’, hang­over headache. Phew.

So you’ll save money by buy­ing fewer drinks, and you’ll be kind to your liver by con­sum­ing fewer units. Plus, stretch­ing one 120-calo­rie glass of wine into a longer drink means you’ll con­sume fewer calo­ries dur­ing a night out, leav­ing you some spares for that all-im­por­tant cheese toastie when you get home… Cheers!
