Drinks for eating well

Heathly Florentine Pizza

Olly’s wine pairing: Estrella Galicia 0.0% Lager (4 x 330ml) £4.50, Ocado

Always taking pride of place in my fridge, this is my favourite zero-alcohol lager – and it’s a massive winner paired with pizza. Liquid genius.

Chilli-Salt Salmon

Olly’s wine pairing: Nozeco (0.5%) £3.25, Tesco

Bubbly goes down fabulously with salmon, and this low-alcohol bargain is good enough for a glass of guilt-free fizz to accompany Gabriela’s chilli-infused recipe.

Chicken Satay Noodle Salad

Olly’s wine pairing: Everleaf Mountain (50cl, 0%) £20, everleafdrinks.com

Brilliant topped up with your favourite tonic water – think pink gin without the booze – this refreshing aperitif is scrumptious with Asian dishes too!

Kitchen garden homemade ice-cream

Olly’s wine pairing: Oddbird Alcohol Free Sparkling Rosé NV (0%) £12, harveynichols.com

Crunchy red fruit along with pleasing bubbles give this zesty fizz some real presence to accompany fresh fruit flavours.

Wheat Treat

Olly’s wine pairing: Erdinger Alkoholfrei Wheat Beer (500ml,0.5%) £1.60, Sainsbury’s

With only 25 calories per 100ml yet with all the taste of a classic German wheat beer, this low-alcohol tipple is a treat any time.
