Did you have a happy New Year? We celebrated at home (our apartment has a great view of the Space Needle fireworks show!) and stayed pretty low key. Thankfully it was a little more festive because I received a sample of [yellow tail] bubbles sparkling wine to try!
It was yummy - very light and somewhat sweet without making me sick to my stomach. Sure, it's no Veuve, but for about $40 less, I think it's worth the trade off. Best part? The top is a fancy screw-off, so I didn't have to wait for Ryan's help. Plus, it's resealable and designed to keep the bubbles going so you can have mimosas on New Year's Day. Win win.
Then I mixed up a little champagne cocktail with another sample they sent and it was delish. Here's the recipe:
Chambord & Champagne 1/2 oz Chambord ChampagneAdd Chambord to bottom of flute glass and top with champagne.
