Whether it’s a New Years brunch or a super early morning you celebrate at home before the big 2019 day celebration, there must be two things in order: champagne and sparkling rosé! Not only are both festive, but they’re light enough to enjoy in the beginning of the day with light snacks or breakfast.
This year, I have a few really special champagnes and sparkling rosés on my bar cart that are absolutely perfect (and inexpensive) to ring in the new year with!!!
CHANDON X BAUBLEBAR
Chandon x BaubleBar Sparkling Rosé and Brut - Two limited edition holiday bottles! This collaboration collection features gorgeous Chandon Brut and Rosé bottles that have been reimagined designs inspired by BaubleBar’s glamorous, statement style. In addition to the bottles, BaubleBar has also designed a limited edition #ChandonSquad necklace! This collection represents the merging of two brands, with female leaders (Chandon California’s Head Winemaker Pauline Lhote and BaubleBar’s Founders Amy Jain and Daniella Yacobovsky), that brings sparkle into your life in an accessible way.
Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé - Comes in a gorgeous, glamorous bottle that you can’t help but swoon at! This pale pink wine brings a full bouquet of pleasing floral aromas with hints of red berry, artfully crafted with a blend of white wine made from Chardonnay and Glera grapes and a red varietal, Malbec. Its flavor is delicate, but vibrant and well rounded, remaining on the palate and making this a deliciously easy-drinking wine.
One Fo(u)r Champagne - One Fo(u)r by Nicolas Feuillatte is the Champagne to enjoy any place, anywhere. The most bohemian of all champagnes. One Fo(u)r is totally unique, with a handy wrist strap attached to each bottle, an exclusive design by Nicolas Feuillatte to add a practical, stylish touch and carry it with ease wherever you may go. Tips for putting these pint-sized Champagne bottles to use at your own holiday party: Use as place cards; simply write your guests names on the bottles with a metallic permanent marker. Hand out to your guests as party favors - the wrist strap makes the bottle easily transported from one party to the next. With no glassware necessary, just pop in a straw and sip at your leisure, which also means less clean-up from your holiday party shenanigans!
Ruffino Sparkling Rosé - Ruffino Sparkling Rosé is fresh and fragrant with notes of strawberry and slight hints of rose petals. On the palate this wine has elegant bubbles and refreshing acidity, offering alluring flavors of delicate red berries and white fruits that linger through the finish.
Stella Rosa Imperiale Rosso Lux - An eye-catching, palate-tempting semi-sweet, sparkling red blend that is the essence of all that is right. Let this Italian sparkler liven up your life and ring you into the new year! Fresh strawberries and red berries is this sparkling wine’s flavor profile and it could not get any more delectable than this.
Add some extra goodies for to celebrate!
What goes along fabulously with some bubbly? Some decadent chocolatey bites! I love the Sparkling Pink Champagne Rosé Truffles and the white chocolate Glitz Ball Truffles from Lolli and Pops. They just are the perfect little poppers and they’re small enough to keep on your bar cart along with your flutes and bottles.
Hoping everyone has an amazing New Years celebration! Cheers to 2019 and to many more glitzy entertaining!!!
