We’ve all heard it – we should be drinking less alcohol. Which, frankly feels like being told you have to go on a diet and doesn’t sound like much fun! Or maybe more responsibilities and a budget to stick to means you need to hold back a bit.
Fear not! There are some easy tricks to help you cut down without feeling like you’re missing out.
Make a fuss of what you’re drinking, try something new or buy a wine you know you like but trade up a pound or two. If you make a bit of a fuss about what you’re drinking you’ll slow down and enjoy it more.
Invest in some nice glasses so you can sniff, swirl and sip at your wine.
I use vacuvin wine pumps to seal a bottle I haven’t finished and save it for another day, I find if you use a pump like these the wines will last a few days OR buy half bottles or 50cl bottles, there’s even less temptation then!
Make sure you’re not thirsty when you have a glass of wine, that’s the biggest cause of finishing a glass too quickly.
