It’s Wicked Wednesday. Hump Day. The week is half over. Time for a wicked indulgence. Comfort for a bad day or celebration for a good day. You earned it.
Today’s wicked indulgence – open a bottle of sparkly, bubbly champagne. Wicked Champagne. The “devil’s wine”. Time to celebrate. Time for a little romance. The week is half over and TGIF Friday night is quickly approaching. You deserve the exhilarating elegance of sipping a flute of icy, bubbly, champagne.
Champagne, Prosecco, and other sparkling wines and juices are made for celebrating, special occasions, and romance. Why wait for a special occasion when you can pour yourself a glass now? Sometimes you just need some sparkle and glamour to make your day. Champagne was Marilyn Monroe’s favorite drink. Celebrate a full week of exercising, celebrate a recent accomplishment, celebrate your relationship, celebrate your friendships, celebrate your wonderful self because you are amazing!
Champagne is a sensuous drink. Buy a nice bottle of champagne, chill it, and pour it into a flute. Swirl the glass and watch the bubbles. Sniff the fruity, spicy, flora aroma. Taste it. Feel the magical bubbles in your nose and on your tongue. It’s bliss. Effervescent. Toast the magic of being alive in this amazing and breathtaking world.
Make it special. You don’t have to have an expensive bottle. Add a few raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries. Make a sugar rim around your glass. Embellish your glass with a strawberry. Serve your champagne with caviar, butter, and crackers, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolates, fruits, crackers and cheese, eggs dishes. Add a splash of orange juice, cranberry juice, or pomegranate juice and serve it with eggs for breakfast or an elegant supper.
Champagne makes you feel good and it also makes you feel special. It’s glamorous and romantic. Drinking two glasses a day can provide enough antioxidants to: 1. Improve your memory. 2. Help lower blood pressure and prevent heart problems. 3. Improve your skin by detoxifying it and improving skin tone. Plus, champagn nearly always has fewer calories than wine. Take care; because champagne can get you drunk faster. Drink lots of water when imbibing the bubbly or mix with juice.
Sparkling apple juice is a wonderful alternative if you wish to avoid the alcohol. Sparkling apple juice is a delicious, tongue-tickling, tart drink that can be just as festive as a bottle of champagne. Plus, you can make your own which could save you a lot of money if you need a large quantity for a party. Simply combine 2 cans of apple juice concentrate with 1 – two liter bottle of club soda.
Champagne is always ready to party! Open a bottle for date night or a romantic interlude. Champagne is a potent aphrodisiac. It uplifts the mood and tickles the nose. It seduces and pampers.
You can serve champagne for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or as a midnight snack. It will keep three to five days if re-corked and kept in a cool, dry place. Leftover champagne can be used in recipes or as a beauty treatment. Try theses delicious champagne cupcakes:
