Forget beer pong - Prosecco pong is the drinking game you’ve been waiting for

It's all you need to get the party started – with a touch of class of course

Look, we’ve all been there – hot day, great company, booze is flowing and before you know it that old table has been set up for beer pong. However, there is one crucial dilemma that until now no one had even thought to challenge – not everyone likes beer.

So, with that in mind a US-based company called Talking Tables turned it all around and is now shipping their Prosecco Pong kits globally.

The box itself includes 12 prosecco coupes and three sturdy pink ping pong balls to keep you going.

It’s important to note that it’s actually a lot harder to get the ball in the coupes, given they’re smaller than the traditional red solo cup – but hey, that’s just another reason for the bros to get involved and prove their worth. After all, pink is a real man's colour!

When it comes to the prosecco (that’s not included by the way), there’s so many choices out there - from the cheaper approachable sort, to the more expensive premium ranges.

You’re also not restricted to just using prosecco (don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone), there’s a hell of a lot of English Sparkling Wines, cava’s, Champagnes, sparkling reds and more out there too.

Finally, while ‘chugging booze’ may sound fun, remember that sparkling wines have a lot more ABV than your standard cheap beer, so maybe sip instead and of course and make sure to drink responsibly!

Buy prosecco pong from Firebox for £14.99
