From: Happy Food,
Hang on in there folks, the weekend’s nearly here. To celebrate, we’ve got some great recipes for tasty tipples with a festive flair. The best part? None of them contain any added sugar. Might as well help yourself to a few, then...
We all know the saying ‘A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips’. Sadly, most of our favourite treats aren’t figure-friendly – meaning that indulgent times of the year such as Christmas can be a bit of a minefield.
Luckily, the smart people over at Simply Nectar have solved our cocktail quandary by coming up with a range of suggestions that contain no refined sugar or chemical nasties. They've teamed up with organic wine specialist Vintage Roots and organic food company What On Earth to make sure our festive cup runneth over. Now all we have to do is dust off those champagne flutes...
