As the nation enters another three weeks of lockdown, The Rochdale Herald asks “Which alcohol is best for breakfast?”

Coco Pops – RH recommends a light-bodied Pinot Noir or a fruit-forward Merlot to accentuate the cocoa in your pops.

Corn Flakes – RH recommends a moderately oaked Chardonnay or a slightly off-dry Riesling to emphasise the corn’s sweet flavour.

Fruit salad – RH recommends the gently spicy wheat aromas and citrus zing that make Weissbier the perfect breakfast beer for those who love their fruit.

Eggs Benedict – RH recommends a crisp dry Prosecco or, for those who haven’t had to sign on for Universal Credit, a vintage Champagne.

Porridge – RH recommends a good Scottish real ale or even a ginger wine for the more adventurous.

Omelette – RH recommends a crisp Rosé although a light, high-acidity red can also work.

Continental breakfast – RH recommends Côtes du Rhône or a fruity Rioja as the all rounders to complement your cheese, cold meats and croissants.

Full English breakfast – RH recommends a chilled Sauvignon Blanc to bring out the flavours of the bacon and cut through the greasiness of the egg. Dipping toast soldiers in your wine before mopping up the bean juice really elevates your breakfast to another level.

Muesli – RH recommends Absynthe to bring a little excitement into your life.

Join us next week when we’ll discuss which cocktail is best for home schooling.
