As February draws to a close and with Spring fast approaching, we’re now entering the full flow of wedding season which has got me thinking about the two weddings I’ve been invited to this Summer.
Weddings are well known for the over flow of alcohol and I’m yet to attend an alcohol free wedding. But what if you were planning a dry wedding because of personal preference or wanted to have a selection of non-alcoholic drinks for pregnant guests, someone’s religious beliefs or perhaps for the designated drivers?
Well there are more options than just orange juice, lemonade and water! Like Newton’s Appl Fizzics, a new apple drink with a healthy twist.
Newton’s Appl Fizzics is packaged in a glass bottle just like cider, even I was fooled into thinking this was an alcoholic drink. But on closer inspection it reveals the soft drink is in fact completely natural blend of apple juice and sparkling water with no added sugar, artificial ingredients or preservatives.
The juice drink has been inspired by Sir Isaac’s Newton's discovery of gravity – when he spotted an apple falling to the ground - and is named and produced in the UK by Newton ’s appl fizzics’ own ‘fizzicians’. What’s more, it contains no E numbers, hence no ‘e’ in the appl of appl fizzics!
So how does it taste? While it’s made from concentrate, I love that this juice drink isn’t too sweet but still has a tasty but refreshing flavour. Plus it’s much healthier than just apple juice on its own. Newton’s Appl Fizzics contains approximately 40% less sugar than apple juice so this makes it the ideal soft drink not just adults but for children too.
A great choice for non-alcoholic drink at a wedding
So if you’re planning on serving soft drinks at your wedding this year here are some of my top tips:
- Not just children who don't drink alcohol! Around up to 30% of guests won’t be drinking at weddings this year so remember it’s not just children who will want soft drinks, Remember to think of designated drivers, those with religious beliefs, pregnant friends or guests who just want to go alcohol free for the day.
- Presentation is everything - Serve your non-alcoholic drinks, like Newton ’s appl fizzics, in champagne flutes to help your non-drinking guests feel super special.
- Dress up your non-alcoholic drinks: Having a rustic themed wedding? Then fill a wheelbarrow with ice and place your soft drinks in it. Decorate with flowers, ribbons and a blackboard to finish off the rustic look
- Don't forget accessories: Add small but cute accessories like vintage straws to glasses that match your wedding colours to add a bit of fun to the non-alcoholic drinks.
Newton’s Appl Fizzics is available from Amazon.co.uk, Harrods and independent grocers, farm shops and delis. 330ml bottles RRP of £1.29 and £2.49 for 750ml.
