Babycham might be something that your mother drank in the 1970s but it was launched back in 1953 and was the first alcoholic drink to be marketed directly at women. With it's light, sweet sparkling taste and cute fawn-adorned bottle, women who had only just been allowed to even enter bars were encouraged to just say "I'd love a Babycham". The cute coupe glasses it was served in feel glamorous and oh-so-feminie - my pair are extremely delicate and are lucky to have survived the test of time in such perfect condition! Despite the name and appearance, Babycham is not champagne - it's sparkling perry made from perry pears. It tastes sweet but refreshing and is best drunk ice cold or - for those who want to take the retro factor a little further - mixed with advocat to make a snowball cocktail.
Babycham now feels like a nostalgic tipple, bringing back a bygone era of vintage glamour. Despite it's swish appearance, Babycham has a rather retro price-point - the fawn-adorned bottle here with its party popping cork is only £3.49 (available at Asda, Tesco and B&M).
