Itís a merry time of year and we must all have a relative or friend who has been known to exhibit a golden glow after enjoying one too many snowballs on Christmas Day, despite being devoutly tea total for the other 364 days of the year!
Christmas Day Lunch
The Christmas meal itself is one of the few times when we can enjoy a glass of wine at lunchtime, without feeling sinful, and it is a wonderful opportunity to buy a bottle of something special to really enjoy and make an occasion of the meal. Traditionally, a white wine would have been selected to accompany poultry, but these days, there are so many versatile reds around, that it really is down to personal preference. Red wine does add a decidedly festive look to the Christmas table too, almost taking on a jewel like quality as it sparkles in the best glassware.
Good old-fashioned Christmas drinks include favourites like hot mulled wine and eggnog, and just thinking of these can induce feelings of being in a cosy winter wonderland.
