A question for our esteemed FSM British Christmas Pudding thread panel:

Which alcoholic beverage, if any, is the most common at your brood's Christmas dinner table?



Prosecco.


I tried that a while ago, god it's so sweet. It reminded me of a big favourite about 45 years ago, Mateus Rose (Rod Stewart's favourite wine, well it was then), I tried that a year ago & that was really sweet. Christmas dinner will be red wine, but as I'm only visiting my sister (& the whole family) for a few hours instead of a couple of days this year, it'll only be a glass or two.

Mateus Rose is however a specific branded drink, whereas there are many Proseccos. You’ll find a dry one if you check the label smile

And we don’t limit ourselves to Prosecco (in truth we also get one decent Champagne but keep that for when we’re on our own over the break!) Pretty sure there’ll be some Rioja Reserva flowing and, if we’re feeling flush, a Barolo.

Not discounting the chance of beer and/or spirits, either.

I did not know that, the Prosecco I tried was obviously a sweet one. Due to family circumstance (a very unwell mother, the problems of an ageing family) I won't be drinking much this Christmas. I do have a houseful of booze thanks to all the supermarket wine offers (quite few bottles of Rioja Gran Reserva, & a few bottles of bourbon). And as I like to start off the year booze free for the first two or three months, it's all going to have to wait, but I'm sure it won't all go off.smile

And just to clarify my careless comment above, if you want a “dry” Prosecco, look for Brut on the label, not dry. Dry would probably seem sweet, although it’s probably more medium, which I quite like but Mrs TG doesn’t. The vagaries of wine appellation!

And all the best with your family as well, mate. I know what stress an ailing mother can put you under, as much as you love ‘em.
