Have you heard the news…Champagne sales are at an all-time high! According to CNN business we are all taking up the slack in the 2020 pandemic sales of the bubbly. France exported $180 million bottles of the bubbly stuff in 2021. World wide sales were a record breaking $6.2 billion! Seems we were all tired of Covid news and decided to enjoy ourselves with friends at home. I am sure my family and friends made a contribution to that increase in sales.
If you need an idea for champagne cocktails this weekend head over to the Barefoot Contessa’s website for inspiration. Ina Garten’s champagne cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate…for any reason you like. She has an ease and elegance that make her recipes the perfect way to start any occasion. Gather a few simple ingredients, pop the bubbly and enjoy a special start to your next occasion. Simple and elegant are the best way to describe this cocktail—enjoy!
