A spectacular family fun day to celebrate children’s charity
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!
