Champagne Moments

Click to visit my Champagne playlist on YouTube

As we are celebrate our tenth year in business, my attention turns to that most celebratory of drinks and that most often associated with opera: Champagne

I reached a time in my life where I thought I would have no champagne moments. No kids graduations or weddings, no one to throw us anniversary parties, etc.

It was at this point that I decided that I would instead drink something sparkling at every opportunity I could. Because all moments are special in their way. Bonus: a reasonable sparkling option is often the same or less in price than “normal wine” on many restaurant menus- Hurrah!

My favorite is Prosecco but that is quibbling because I even consider sparkling water to be quite elegant.

Hope you will enjoy my list of sparkling drink choices to celebrate life’s beautiful and amazing moments.

Mimosa
1 part Orange Juice
1 Part Champagne, Prosecco or Cava

Bucks fizz
2 parts Champagne, Prosecco or Cava
1 part Orange Juice

Cindy’s easy lower sugar Poinsettia
I love this any time of year because Cranberry juice is so good for you. A proper poinsettia would include orange liqueur but I find it unnecessarily sweet…

1 part Champagne, Prosecco or Cava
1 part Diet Cranberry Juice (or regular juiceif you prefer)

To make any of these non-alcoholic, replace with your own preferred combinations of sparking grape juice, regular grape juice and/or sparkling water. I don’t like the sweetness of most bottled grape juice so I would opt for plain sparkling water which I find quite elegant in it’s own right.

Get creative because a spritz of sparkling water or seltzer in any kind of juice is a treat!
