Does anyone remember when Babycham was the ‘in’ drink? This topic was sparked off by someone on the JYC forum today.

Yes, it was called champagne perry because of the bubbles.I used to drink it just like the lady above, with a cherry in! Perry is made traditionally with pears in the same way as cider is made. Both the cider and the perry go through a process of being turned slowly when bottled, just like the french champagne makers do. When I was older, I used to drink brandy and babycham. It was called a Sputnik after the Russian space vehicle and if you had one too many, you really went into orbit!!!! Well, maybe this Christmas will be a very merry, perry even sherry one after all!!!! Thanks for reminding me !
