The Champagne Story
“I drink Champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it―unless I’m thirsty.”
― Lily Bollinger, (1899-1977), Bollinger Champagne
The famous quote from one of Champagnes leading ladies is one we can definitely get behind and nothing quite says "Treat yo' self" like a bottle of Champagne! It can be a complex yet elegant drop with many drinkers having their tried and true favourites, a particular brand they swear by or a style they won't budget from but it's definitely worth venturing out of your comfort zone to try new things when it comes to the wonderful world of Champers. While there are core commonalities across these wines (grape varieties used, winemaking technique etc.) the nuances and subtilties as well as the shear number of options now available can take you on quite a journey.
Champagne cocktails are a great way to add a little dazzle to your lunch or dinner tables, they usually consist of a small amount of ingredients and most
of which might already be sitting in your pantry or fridge.
Champagne Cocktails can be as simple or complex as you like. Adding in a few strawberries to a Sparkling Rose can be a cocktail or even adding some orange
juice to some prosecco to make a classic styled Mimosa OR what about
The Aperol Spritz is also another great Champagne cocktail, which if you have a bottle sitting in the house, have a read of the back label it actually has the
cocktails recipe on the back of it!
