Have a Spot of Bubbly this Holiday Season

What's your drink of choice? A glass of earthy Cabernet Savignon? Jack Daniels and Coke over ice? Maybe a Vodka Martini?

Champagne is my preferred libation.  But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm a high-maintenance diva. Au contraire. I keep my fridge stocked with Freixenet. It's $9.99 at Tom Thumb and I looooove it. Sometimes you can find it at Target and use their coupons.  So, I was thrilled when I came home recently to find a package on my doorstep from Freixenet. I was even more gleeful when I realized it was not one big bottle, but sample of new MINI bottles they had sent me!


This is so exciting because anyone who drinks champagne knows that once you pop the cork, you have about a 24 hour window before the bottle goes flat. I love a bit of the bubbly now and again, but I don't necessarily want (or need) to drink a whole bottle! So, this new mini size is perfect for when you just want a glass with dinner or to have with dessert.  At a retail price of $3, they are so affordable!!

Check out the Freixenet website for lots of fun cocktail recipes.  Cheers to 2012!
