EVERYBODY is getting wasted on Prosecco this year, supermarkets have confirmed.
Traditionally consumed by Italians as a springtime aperitif, the sparkling wine has become the fast track to lightly sparkling oblivion for millions of UK drinkers.
Wine expert Francesca Johnson said: “Prosecco is great for when the sun’s out and you want to get wrecked in the day without feeling like a tramp.
“You can have six or ten glasses in a session because it’s a light fun drink.
“Sometimes my friends and I laugh so much that we feel dizzy and vomit down our fronts.”
Joanna Kramer of Brighton said: “The bubbles get you drunker, especially if you neck it fast, and after three bottles I was already finding myself places with no clear idea of how I got there.
“Perhaps it makes you teleport.”
Prosecco fan Stephen Malley said: “I woke up this morning in the garden, a four-inch cut on my forearm from where I punched the glass of the back door out trying and failing to get in the house.
“I chuckled to myself and said ‘Oh, that cheeky Prosecco’.”
