Prosecco Christmas crackers

Another day, and another incredible invention in time for Christmas.

We've already had gin-filled mince pies and pork scratching advent calendars, and now, behold... Christmas crackers full of prosecco, gin AND wine.

You can now buy a set of fancy crackers that hold miniature bottles of prosecco instead of the usual plastic shoehorn that you'll find at the back of the sofa in a few months' time.

The crackers will be available to buy via Virgin Wines Sendagift, and each cracker also contains a joke, hat and wine fact (a bit dull, but needs must), as well as a 200ml bottle of fizz.

If prosecco isn't your tipple, you can also get crackers containing a 187ml bottle of fancy wine:

Or you can go for the gin crackers, each containing either a measure of Bombay Sapphire or Beefeater London Dry gin and a can of tonic:

The crackers go on sale soon at Christmas is sorted!
