Skinny Love I’m generally at my happiest with a large flute in hand, so when the invitation to attend the launch of Thomson and Scott Skinny Prosecco dropped in the letterbox I was delighted. I have developed a fondness for procsecco in the past few years and after hearing all the hype I was keen to see if for once the healthier version was up to scratch.
The fact that this even was in Caprice also helped. I feel in love with this café the first time I dined there. So much so in fact that after my first meal in the stunning eateier, I called my good friend Ruth and brought her in that same afternoon for coffee. I have become quiet the regular as you can probably guess from my snapchats and instagram posts. This place is a bloggers dream, simply sublime in every aspect.
The event itself was great fun. A trend lately has been people criticising events that they didn’t enjoy, if you go in with the wrong attitude even the best events won’t satisfy you. With so many familiar faces I knew this would be lots of craic, not to mention the free flowing bubbly. Connacht rugby stars Matt Healy and Jake Heenan were there with their friend Niyi Adeloykun.
The prosecco by Thomson & Scott contains 67 calories per glass, with just seven grams of sugar per litre. The average litre of prosecco contains between 12 and 18 grams, with some particularly luxurious varieties hitting the 30 gram mark. This prosecco which hails from Soligo in Italy’s Treviso province, and was devised after Thomson & Scott CEO Amanda Scott got the idea to create a lower calorie drink due after discovering the huge amounts of sugar in alcohol. Not only that, but it’s also organic and vegan certified.
The verdict was overwhelmingingly positive, this crowd know their processeco and I had to admit to a person we were pleasantly surprised. One of my favourite meals of the week is Sunday Brunch in Caprice, I’ll be leaving the car at home next weekend so I can enjoy a glass or two of Skinny Prosecco.
