Champagne Stars

All too many people shy away from drinking champagne because it ‘goes right to their head’. While this is a travesty in the making, unfortunately, it has been proven. The carbonation bubbles within the bottle act as happy little speedy messengers—far surpassing their vineyard relatives. But none the less, some of us drink on!

My college roommate is getting married soon and all we single ladies are hosting a bridal shower at the end of January in her honor. A devout champagne drinker, she could always be seen with a bottle of bubbly whether it be a Friday night, or Sunday brunch. Dom Perignon, at the moment he discovered champagne , exclaimed “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!” Here’s to you, Mrs. Thompson—may you too taste the stars in your marriage.

Champagne Punch

1 bottle of champagne – Brut
1 can frozen cranberry concentrate
½ liter Sprite

MIX all of above. Do not dilute frozen concentrate, just mix concentrate.

GARNISH with fresh strawberries or cranberries.
