Without question, too much alcohol is bad for you. But there is something to be said about the fun and the benefits of drinking a few choice beverages in moderation. 

Prosecco is one of those few choice drinks. It’s a sparkling wine that comes from Northeastern Italy. The name comes from the place where it was first created, Prosecco, Italy. One of the main reasons people enjoy the drink is because it is considered a cheaper alternative to Champagne.

Okay, first of all, hear us out. Yes, most alcohol can lift your spirits and improve your mood—especially when you’ve had a long hard day.

Guards You Against Colds

One of life’s greatest inconveniences is the common cold. You’re left weak, cold, and reeling for days. And there’s no better way to handle it other than to just let it run its course.

There’s no cure for the common cold yet, so the best you can do is protect yourself. Aside from eating healthy, exercising often, and drinking vitamins, a glass of Prosecco every now and then can also protect you from colds. Let us clarify and say that Prosseco cannot cure or help you get better from a cold. But it can guard you against it.
