New year is around the corner. In The Netherlands we have the tradition that we eat 'oliebollen', light firework and drink champagne when the clock ticks 00:00 If you don't want or can't drink alcohol and you are looking for an alcohol-free alternative, 'Ran Watte Champagne' might be a good option for you.
