My favourite drink 🍾 Pink Champagne πŸ’–

January 27, 2016

I have always absolutely loved Champagne! I don’t know whether it’s the prettiness of the bottle, the beautiful bubbles or the fact that drinking Champagne is always associated with celebrations.

I am of the belief that if you are going to enjoy a beautiful bottle of Champagne, make sure it is a good one. At the moment, and for a few years now, my favourite has got to be Tattinger’s Pink Champagne. It is a beautiful shade of rose pink and is just so easy to drink, not too sweet, no bitter after taste, it’s just perfect!

  
So here are a few fun facts about Champagne I thought you’d all enjoy! –

  1. Champagne has less calories– Five ounces of champagne is roughly 90 calories, while red wine has 125 for the same amount. 
  2. Champagne is good for you – Research shows champagne is good for your heart and circulation and keeps your brain sharp.
  3. Always choose Brut – Before being corked, the wine is topped off with sugar, and the amount added at this stage dictates how sweet it’ll be once you pop the cork. Extra Brut (the driest and least sweet), Brut, Extra Dry (medium dry), Sec, to Demi Sec (super sweet). Brut has fewer calories.
  4. Choose Brut & avoid a hangover – The hangover comes from the sugar in the sweeter varieties so stick to Brut to avoid a headache the morning after.

My elegant & easy way to open a bottle of Champagne without causing any mess –

  1. Remove the bottle from the fridge, take off the foil & dry the bottle with a dry cloth to avoid slipping.
  2. Hold the bottle in one hand. Wrap the cloth around the cork bit with the other hand.
  3. Holding the cork bit firmly. Twist the bottle gently.
  4. The cork will slowly ease out making a tiny ‘pop’ sound.

 Every drop is like liquid gold, don’t waste it, enjoy it 🍾
