Co-op’s Prosecco- Special Cuvee Vino Spumante Brut

Last night was definitely a quirky one…

A group of us visited Hertfordshire University’s annual Summer ball which consisted of a fun fair (a word to the wise- fast moving rides are not ideal when wearing a short floaty dress), a casino, several weird and wonderful bars, as well as live sets from the likes of Ellie Goulding and Chase and Status.

Living in London, it was a bit of a trek to rely on cabs so Luke and I holed up in Hatfield’s Travelodge (not luxury I know, but at £35 a night, I wasn’t complaining)…

In celebration for completing my exams, I brought along a chilled bottle of Prosecco my friend Ella had given me on my birthday. When we arrived, however, the only drinking vessels available in our room were mugs for morning coffee… Since neither of us fancied asking reception for champagne flutes, (connoisseurs look away now!) we tasted this delightful sparkler out of a mug.

I have to say, while we probably didn’t fully appreciate the ‘pale straw colour’ and ‘delicate bubbles’ that the wine had to offer, we both agreed that it was delicious; rich and creamy on the palate with tart, fruity flavours. It served as the perfect apperitif to our night out…

Next time, we’ll bring our own glasses!
