Find champagne for less and more fizz that doesn't cost a fortune with our edit of quality sparkling wines at high street prices, from Waitrose to Lidl. Of course, this is especially important now that there is potentially a shortage of prosecco about to hit, with rumours sending Facebook and Twitter into meltdown this week...
Fizz isn't all about Champagne, prosecco and cava - we love some of the lesser known names too. Our top picks include Moscato for sparkling on the sweeter side, Sauvignon Blanc for a floral fizz and a crisp sparkling English rosé
at a great price.
These aren't just for toasting and celebrations. Fizz is perfect as a base for cocktails too! Forget the classic Champagne cocktail, Mimosa and Kir Royale - we love it with a sprig of fresh mint, a slice of green apple and a dash of elderflower cordial.
The delicate flavours lend themselves effortlessly to both sweet and savoury dishes. Our smoked salmon and caviar blinis
are delicious with a classic French Champagne, but why not try a Moscato Spumante with fig and black olive tapenade crostini
wines are a fab pairing with most desserts, especially in fruity summer puddings. Lighter rosé
wine's will pair well with this show-stopping strawberry charlotte and the darker, heavier rosé'
s are a great match for some indulgent chocolate brownies.
Don't forget these aren't just for drinking! Any of these will be delicious in some of our favourite dinner party pudding recipes too. Try raspberry and pink champagne jelly
for a real treat. At these prices, you don't need any excuses to pop a bottle or two this weekend!
This Veuve Monsigny (pictured) is a joy to all the senses! It boasts an intense aroma of baked apple and stone fruits with crisp refreshing flavours of apple and red fruits. It has won a whole host of awards, including a silver award from Decanter, and you get change from a tenner!
Available for £9.99 from Aldi.
