Long Shot - best for a healthy hard seltzer

There are enough calories involved in Christmas food without adding the calories from drinks on top. Luckily, there are low-calorie options out there that can taste great, and Long Shot is one of our favourites.

XECO wines - best for a proper sherry

Lots of people think they don't like sherry, but that's because they've only ever tried the one their gran gives them. The team at XECO wants to shake the sherry stigma and they're doing it in style - their 3 sherries are made from the finest ingredients and intended to be consumed in whatever way you please (mixed with tonic, as an apéritif, or even just on its own). Their commitment to the art of creating wonderful sherry is impressive and you should give their drinks a try.
