How I'm enjoying a booze-free Summer

The Christmas and New Year period is known as the time of indulgence. Indulging in food, drink and all the good times. I don't know about you, but the holidays also signal a time of significantly increased stress for me. Work deadlines, looking after my energetic daughter and getting everyone's gifts organised (why is that always left to us women?!)

So amongst all the increased stress, I have zero time for a hangover. Thanks to Edenvale Alcohol removed wines, I'm getting the taste minus the hangover this Summer. I also know that I’ll feel better within myself (mentally and physically) holding off on the booze this year.






Here are my two go-to drinks that are bringing me Christmassy/Summery vibes without the next-day headache.

  • 1/2 punnet strawberries

  • 1/2 cup watermelon

  2. Pour over Pinot Gris till the glass is 3/4 full
