Low Cal Party

Punchy Partner

Olly’s wine pairing: Bloody Bens Spiced Tomato Juice, £15 for 5 x 200ml bottles, shop. bloodybens.com

This is the most balanced, punchy and spicy tomato mix I’ve had. A piquant partner for the Pizza Nachos.

A Spirit for Spice

Olly’s wine pairing: Caleño Light & Zesty Tropical Non-Alcoholic Spirit (50cl), £18, Sainsbury’s

Poured over ice and topped up with Sprite, this is lovely with mildly spicy chicken dishes.

Bubbly Brilliance

Olly’s wine pairing: Estrella Galicia 0.0%, £7.80 for 12 x 30cl bottles, Majestic

My favourite non- alcoholic lager is spot on for a cascade of bubbly brilliance to match the Nachos’ crunch.

Top with Tiramisu

Olly’s wine pairing: Rosé Prosecco DOC 2021 (11%) £6.99, Lidl

This sherbet tangerine of a wine makes a change from heavy dessert wines with pud. And with Prosecco in the tiramisu, it’s ideal for your glass too!

The Best with Zest

Olly’s wine pairing: Brown Brothers Orange Muscat & Flora 2022 (9%) £8.50, Tesco

A sweetly scented mandarin marvel with a refreshing zing, this is an Aussie ace to serve cool with the Cheesecake Tarts.
