Cupcakes have always been one of our fave treats, but there's nothing worse than buying or baking really stodgy, dense ones.

Three bites in and you're full (and not feeling so great, either).

However, Delish has created a hack to make your cupcakes light and fluffy… and it involves our favourite alcohol.

It notes that adding soda to your mixture has been a longtime hack, so why not try prosecco?

Well, its bakers did and it worked a treat. They said, "the end result is even lighter and fluffier than any cake we've ever had before." Score.

If you fancy adding a splash of prosecco into your cakes, take a look at the how-to video above.

And have a little tipple while baking, we won't tell.

Want to feel fancy AF while sipping prosecco in your PJs? Then you're going to love this.

You can now buy edible glitter to add a bit of bling to your booze.

The shimmering dust adds sparkle to your drink, as well as a slight raspberry flavour, so you can enjoy your night in like a total queen.

And, if you want to add something special to your drinks on date night, edible flakes of heart-shaped gold are also available.

But, as like all great things, the edible glitter and flakes are currently sold out, but keep an eye on this website for when they'll be on sale again.

We'll be frank here; we love a sweet treat, and we adore a slick drink.

And when one of our favourite fancy drinks gets paired with one of our very favourite fancy treats, we'd step over our own mothers to get our hands on the recipe.

So, without further ado ladies, we give you Prosecco Pancakes.

Don't worry, you can thank us later.

Ingredients

For the pancakes

250g plain flour

2tsp baking powder

1tsp bicarbonate of soda

300ml of buttermilk

60ml Prosecco

2 eggs

Raspberries

Greek yoghurt

For the syrup

150g sugar

150ml Prosecco
​​

Method 

In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.

Combine the buttermilk, Prosecco and the eggs in another bowl and gradually add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients.

Mix until just combined and refrigerate for two hours. 

Slightly grease a pan and pour about one tablespoon of batter over high heat.

Cook for about 2 minutes on one side, and one minute on the other side, until golden. Repeat until you have used up all the batter. 

Meanwhile, make the syrup.

Add the sugar and the Prosecco to a small saucepan over medium heat and let it thicken for about three minutes.

To serve, stack some pancakes on a plate, top them with Greek yoghurt and raspberries and pour over some syrup.

Here, at SHEmazing! we’re fond of a glass of bubbly. From soirees, to weddings, parties, and festivities – toasting the occasion with bubbles makes it all the more special.

However, there is no doubt that in terms of quality, what’s out there is a decidedly mixed bag.

No fizz; weird after-taste; lacking in flavour… we’ve ALL had a dodgy glass (or two) of prosecco or cava (and quite possibly lived to regret it afterwards).

And the stuff that’s actually nice tends to be crazy expensive.

Yes, our quest to source the perfect affordable bubbly continues apace… and now we may have found something that’s pretty close: it’s from Australia, it’s extra dry, it’s full of fizz… and it’s just delightful (we had to sample for research purposes, natch).

Enter McGuigan frizzante. In short, if you like prosecco – you are going to LOVE McGuigan frizzante.

McGuigan has also been named International Winemaker Of The Year a record-breaking four times (a world-first), so you know you’re getting a really quality bottle.

Better still, and while this frizzante is usually priced at a wholly-reasonable €15 in Supervalu and Centra stores nationwide, at the moment it’s on special offer for just €10, which is a pretty ah-maze-ing way to say “Oh hello there, Friday.”

Cheers!

You can also buy McGuigan frizzante online from winesoftheworld.ie in both a standard 750ml bottle size and a snipe (200ml).

Prosecco has easily become one of our favourite drinks in the past few years.

And especially with the introduction of skinny Prosecco, we don't feel too bad about having a boozy brunch every now and again.

But now, we need to gear up for a whole festival surrounding the drink, because it's coming to London pretty soon.

Aptly named Prosecco Springs, the three-day festival will allow you to meet the makers of your favourite fizz, as well as attend tastings, masterclasses and more.

And if the booze wasn't enough to sway you, there will also be live music that will range from jazz quartets to bass-pounding DJs. 

The festival is taking place at the Oval Space in East London from the May 12 – 14.

We already have our tickets booked.

We're fond of a glass of bubbly around SHEmazing! Towers way – so suffice to say one just-announced supermarket offer has really caught our attention. 

Yup, Tesco is currently selling bottles of Borsari at a wholly bargain €7. *STOCK UP!*

It's usually €12 too so this is definitely a great value-for-money option for those who want to toast the arrival of the New Year on a budget (Stephen's Day in the pub took the last of our pennies).

Still, if your aunt slipped you a couple of fifties late on Christmas Day and you want to go all fancy, Tesco also has Louis Delaunay champagne priced at €20; Mumm champagne at €25, and Moet & Chandon champagne at €30.

Otherwise, litre bottles of Captain Morgan’s, Gordon’s gin and Smirnoff vodka are €25.

Happy New Year!

If you are looking for an alternative gift for someone in your life, why not purchase a kit that allows them to make their own booze?

Yes, that is now well within the realm of possibilities, and we are LOVING it. 

There is a company called The Gluttonous Gardener, and they offer a number of "grow-your-own" gifts, from jam to chilli.

This festive season, the company added a Prosecco-growing kit to their range!

So, it's kind of like a drunken bonsai tree!

The kit will set you back only €45, but you'll have to be pretty patient with your process.

The entire Prosecco production process takes six to 18 months, but the final product is so worth it!

What a cool and quirky gift idea.

As much as we love a glass of Prosecco on a night out, there's nothing better than sitting at home with a steaming cuppa tea (and biscuits, of course).

However, now that the festive spirit of Christmas is truly in the air, Aldi (yep, ALDI) has created a seasonal concoction that you're either going to love or hate.

Presenting Prosecco-flavoured tea bags.

Yes, it sounds completely strange, but we're totally loving it.

Aldi describe its new creation as "a vibrant festive taste with an invigorating Italian Prosecco profile."

We'll raise a mug to that...

The tea bags are decaffeinated and non-alcoholic, so you can get all of that fab Prosecco flavour with none of the side effects.

We'd say these babies are going to be snatched up fast!

Christmas day is fast approaching, so it's safe to say we're throwing ourselves into anything festive and fun (in other words, we're going to eat and drink our way into an early Christmas coma).

It's safe to say people have gone all-out this year, and between wine advent calendars, gin-filled decorations, gravy candy canes and boozy jam, these concoctions aren't going anywhere.

And the latest to hit our sights is Prosecco mince pies. Mmm hmm, very fancy.

Ode to Host is the creator of these glorious pies and got the idea from soaking the dried fruit in Prosecco.

The soaked fruit is then mixed in with oranges, lemons, limes, almonds, apples, spices, a dash of brandy and a sip of sherry, and violá! Absolute perfection.

Oh, and did we mention they are gluten- and wheat-free?! So, if you think you're getting dirty looks from your aunt for chugging back the Rosé, these mince pies will be your little secret weapon to get through the day.

You're welcome.

Being one of our all-time favourite tipples, SHEmazing! is rather fond of a spot of prosecco.

So when earlier this year we stumbled across Skinny Prosecco from wine-merchant Thomson & Scott, we were only delira: 67 calories per glass, reduced sugar, organic and certified vegan. 

Much like an old friend, Skinny Prosecco has been with us all the way. From its initial arrival in London, to its emergence online for Irish customers, and now to the official launch of the brand on home-soil.

And while previously, we've enjoyed a glass of low-sugar-but-still-totally-tasty bubbles at home – from today Skinny Prosecco (Ellie Goulding is a fan, fyi) is now also available in Balfes in Dublin's city centre.

Balfes, of course, is already the home of Champagne and Bellini popsicles – so the emergence of Skinny Prosecco at the Dublin 2 venue is frankly pretty special. 

You know, we don't always feel healthy on a night out… but we reckon all this certainly helps!

 

See balfes.ie and thomsonandscott.com. Balfes has Skinny Prosecco for €11.50 per glass or €55 per bottle.

If you're worried about how many calories you're consuming through drinking Prosecco every Friday night, then you need not worry anymore.

The makers of Skinny Champagne, Thomson & Scott, have unveiled its new Skinny Prosecco – and we're excited.

The new fizz contains just 67 calories and half the sugar content of your regular glass. Did we mention it's vegan-friendly, too? And organic. Yep, it just keeps giving.

“We’re all obsessed with the new war on sugar,” says Amanda Thomson, owner of the drinks company.

“I was raised on a sugar free diet by my mother and now 40 years later, it’s finally being recognised as the way forward for many like me who want to avoid the deadly granules! With Prosecco now dominating the market, Skinny Prosecco will be a brand that I’m confident that everyone will look for on the shelves and on their wine lists this year."

It sure will, Amanda. Unfortunately, it's not in Ireland juuuust yet, but if you want more info, visit here
