The other day I picked up a bottle of light wine. For those who don't know, this is a lower calorie wine. Sounds amazing right? Well, everything has a catch and light wine's is it has half the alcohol of regular wine. The particular one I picked up was 5.5% and I bought it specifically because I didn't want to get drunk, I just wanted something to drink.
The wine itself went down easily with a lighter taste than some of the £3 taste crimes I've bought in my student life. Of course, the bottle didn't get me drunk, it was barely more alcoholic than WKD, but I got a bit of a buzz nonetheless.
The verdict? If you enjoy a single glass of wine on an evening switching to light wine might be a diet-friendly way of keeping your tipple. However, if the girls are coming over I recommend sticking to the over 8% stuff to extract the most giggles and sch-kandal.
|I prefer to drink straight from the bottle, with a straw though.|
Because I'm classy.
