Champagne Cocktails – Blogmas day 27

What is it about New Year’s that just screams champagne? I’m fascinated with champagne cocktails for this upcoming holiday.

I don’t quite know why, but when I think about champagne, I think of two things. The Great Gatsby, and New Year’s Eve. It’s kind of glamorous really.

Champagne facts

Fun fact, you can only call champagne, champagne, if it’s from Champagne, France. True story. All other wines with bubbles are just sparkling wines. So next time your friend says that they are opening a bottle of bubbly, that’s a fun little tidbit.

Another fun fact. Most champagnes, those ones from France that is. Don’t typically have their vintage on them (year). Why? Because of how tough it is to get a great year of growth in the climate that the grapes are grown in. Because of the demand for this particular wine, vintages aren’t used because of much of the time. A few years worth of grapes needs to be mixed in order to keep up with the amount needed. Therefore, a vintage cannot properly be marked. You can read more about this here.
