What will we have to drink for Christmas? It’s a common question. Top of the list for many is chilled Champagne – one bottle serving eight is modest enough to start. Make sure the Champagne is well chilled – have an ice bucket half filled with ice to keep it cool. Get out tall glass flutes and ask the most likely person to pop the cork – it should be a gentle whisper not a vulgar pop. It’s all part of the fun.

Cold beer seems to be the choice of many and there is a wide range to choose from; each drinker seems to be emphatic about the best. Or why not offer something different to fit in with the festive spirit? Just one punch with alcohol should do it – we all have to be responsible for our guests (and ourselves) and a large glass jug of plain or sparkling water, lemon slices and mint is always refreshing.

What wines to serve with Christmas dinner? You don’t have to be a connoisseur of fine wine to know what types of wine go with certain foods. If you are uncertain, rely on a good wine merchant, as almost anyone who sells wine has a good idea of which wines best go with certain dishes.
