If we’re being completely honest, there have definitely been a few days that it just hasn’t been possible to make it until happy hour to start drinking. Some days things just require a pick-me-up, whether it begins with a lunchtime beer after yet another criticism from Brenda in accounting, or whether you really just can’t face Wednesday morning without a healthy splash of Bailey’s in your coffee. Of course, drinking before punch-out time comes with its own set of risks, namely being caught by your boss and exchanging your private sector paycheck for government-supplied unemployment. What if you could have the best of both worlds – the flavor of your favorite alcoholic beverage without the risk of losing your job?
Now, you can do exactly that with prosecco tea you can sip at your desk all day long. It’s non-alcoholic, meaning you won’t get fired for day drinking, but still carries the flavor of your favorite bubbles to tide you over until happy hour. You’ll be able to purchase the prosecco-infused teabags at Aldi stores or online this month, and for only $2.50 for a pack of 15 bags, the price couldn’t be better. If prosecco isn’t your drink of choice, you can also get in the holiday spirit with teabags infused with mulled wine, which will at least help you warm up in your freezing cold office.
The only negative? The tea is caffeine free, so you’ll still have to start out your morning with a Starbucks run to get that early morning buzz, but you’ll at least be able to spend the remainder of your day bundled up at your desk pretending you’re at the bar instead. If this is what it takes to get me to make it to 5 o’clock today, you’d better believe that I’m taking my lunch break to hit up my closest Aldi. .
