Nothing Sparkles Like Babycham!

Ah, the sweet taste of nostalgia and Babycham. Do you remember your first alcoholic drink?

Babycham was launched in 1953, with a target audience of young women who liked to go the disco on a Friday night. It was the first alcoholic drink to be advertised on television (and, for many, it was their first-ever taste of alcohol).

Babycham truly is a blast from the past and was certainly a blast in the '70s and '80s!

The sparkling drink was made from fermented pears and was served in a champagne saucer with a complimentary cherry. Yum.

Followers of the Spring Chicken Facebook Community have taken their taste buds on a stroll down memory lane:

Babycham was the first drink my husband bought me. We had a large bottle given to us yesterday for our 53rd wedding anniversary.

Brandy and Babycham was my downfall. I can't deal with the smell now. It was my first drink.

I remember at my sister's 21st birthday party, my mum let me have one she didn't realise they were alcoholic. I kept going back to ask her if I could have another and she kept saying yes. I think I had 4‚ I was quite merry!   

Have you kept your set of glasses adorned with the deer?
