I'm not an alcoholic and I really don't want this blog post to come across that I am, but I'm sure we can all admit that there all comes those days where you've been stressed to hell and back and the only thing that can make you feel better is a nice glass of wine. Just admit it!
Since I signed up for the Dryathlon for charity, I thought I would celebrate my last weekend with my favourite alcohol, wine!
It's hardly news about the new Echo Wine fruit fusion range but it's probably the first time that I've seen them in store! I think there's a few different variations in all red, rosé and white wine but since I'm not really a red wine drinker, I brought the Summer Berries, White Peach and Mango and the Pear and Raspberry bottles. Yum!
I have to admit that out of the three that I trialled, the Summer berries is probably my favourite. It's really light and refreshing and you can really taste the strawberries and raspberries. My second favourite was definitely the Pear and Raspberry although I did find that a little strong - maybe a little lemonade might be needed with that one!
Unforunately the one that didn't live up to my expectations was the White Peach and Mango. I'm currently going through a bit of a Mango loving phase so I thought I would love this but I honestly couldn't taste any mango! The white peach was a lot stronger and seemed to overpower any chance of tasting mango. Oh well!
The only downside to this range is that they do taste exactly like squash and before you know it, you've downed a whole bottle to yourself! Whoops! Overall though for £4 a bottle, they're perfect for those Summer parties or a girlie night in! They are now my go-to bottle to buy and I will definitely be buying another when Dryathlon is finished!
