Yep, it's definitely that time of year when the bubbly is flowing and everyone's feeling a little bit festive.
Yet with summer here, it's that classic challenge of not completely falling off the healthy eating bandwagon.
Lucky for us, it turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too!
With around 335kJ in a standard glass, experts say prosecco is the perfect drink for partygoers.
"Alcohol can be safely consumed as part of a balanced diet for a healthy individual," says nutritionist Jessie Parish.
But there are some things to be mindful of, the expert warns - and she recommends "no more than two standard drinks per day".

1. Stick to your limit

The goal is to have no more than seven glasses a week. Stick with just one glass of prosecco for each day of the below plan.
Or skip a day, and have an extra glass on the weekend.

2. Watch those serves

A standard serve of bubbly is around 125ml. No cheating now!

3. Eat protein and healthy fats

A range of factors affects how you process alcohol.
But expert Jessie says, "You should focus on good quality fats and protein like cheese, nuts and lean meats."

4. Keep up the H2O

Alcohol is a diuretic, so it's important to stay hydrated.
Experts recommend drinking eight glasses of water per day.

5. Have vegies with every meal

"Fruit and vegetables provide us with an abundance of antioxidants, which can reduce or prevent damage caused to the body," Jessie says.
