Merry Christmas Hot Bottlers!

We're overjoyed to invite you to Olly's 'A Taste of Christmas' this Christmas Eve on BBC Radio 2: 12-2pm

Recorded exclusively in the homes and restaurants of some of the nation’s most beloved chefs and cooks, Olly is joined by Prue Leith, Tom Kerridge, Candice Brown, Atul Kochhar and Andi Oliver for a fun-filled two hours of sizzling, slicing, basting, baking and tunes!

The chefs cook up a Christmas feast with dishes to enjoy over the festive period and here's a sneak preview of Prue's fab Mac and Cauli cheese, perfect to serve on Christmas Eve and Tom's turkey with sumptuous stuffing. Click here for the recipes.

Set your reminders to tune in: midday Christmas Eve, BBC Radio 2.

To get you thoroughly in the mood for this festive feast, Olly will be a special guest on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show this Thursday 20th December alongside Emilia Fox, Ben Elton and Richard Ashcroft. He might just be revealing news of his new book out next year!!

Be the first to get hold of FIZZ! 80 joyful cocktails and mocktails for every occasion which you can pre-order now by clicking here.

Saturday Kitchen

And for even more excitement, Olly's back in the Saturday Kitchen studio this Saturday 22nd December bringing Christmas cheer (and tipples) - with chefs Gennaro Contaldo and Glynn Purnell. BBC1 from 10am.

Put your feet up and your Christmas jumpers on and get stuck in to Olly's festive Hot Bottles:

BOOZE FREE: M&S Alcohol Free Sparkling Muscat NV £4. Pretty decent booze free option that’s easy to jazz up with fruity cordials

BEST CIDER FOR HAM: Cidersmiths Harry Masters Jersey Craft Cider, (4.5%) Waitrose £2.19. Exceptional fruity and refreshing cider that's never from concentrate - utterly splendid with ham and cold cuts, stick a few tins in the fridge.

BEST BEER FOR PARTIES: Mikkeller Pilsner Can (4.6%) £2.16 Majestic. Pilsner that's packed with flavour from an iconic Danish brewer. Punchy and irresistibly good.

BEST BEER FOR PARTIES: Spar Languedoc Red 2017 (13.5%) £6.50. In truth, this cheeky French rouge is too good to mull so save some for drinking on its own. Expect gorgeous spicy vibrance from this outstanding red from Spar.

BEST BOURBON: Buffalo Trace Bourbon (40%) on offer Tesco £18. This price is ridiculously good for this magical mellow drop layered with spice, toffee and sweet vanilla splendour.

BEST WITH DARK CHOCOLATE (OR STILTON!): Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 2008 (13%) £30.95 leaandsandeman.co.uk. Exceptional wine and my choice with Stilton at Smith Towers this Christmas. Sticky and zesty it’s as uplifting as marmalade made in heaven.

A big thanks to you all for all your support and kind words over the past year. It's always so great receiving your comments and seeing you inspired by Olly's drinks recommendations.

We hope you have a wonderful, peaceful Christmas.
