Tasting Amador Champagne Bubbles

Popping Bubbles

Hey there, my fellow bubbly babes! Today we’re talking all about one of my favorite drinks: sparkling wine! Whether it’s a special occasion or just a Tuesday night in, there’s nothing like popping bubbles and enjoying a bottle of this delicious drink.

First things first, let’s talk about the different types of sparkling wine. From Champagne to Prosecco to Cava, there’s a sparkling wine for every occasion and every budget. But what makes them different? Well, it all comes down to where they’re made and how they’re made. Champagne, for example, is made in the Champagne region of France and undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, while Prosecco is made in Italy and undergoes a second fermentation in a tank. And while we love Champagne, we’re all about exploring new and exciting sparkling wines – because let’s face it, life’s too short to stick to just one type!

Now that we’ve explored the different types of bubbles, let’s get to the good stuff – some delicious drink recipes you can make at home. Here are four champagne cocktails that I love to make for my weekend brunches:

  1. Classic Champagne Cocktail: This simple yet elegant cocktail combines sugar, bitters, and a splash of brandy with your favorite champagne.
  2. French 75: Named after a World War I-era artillery piece, this cocktail is a potent mix of gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup topped with champagne.
  3. Bellini: This classic Italian cocktail is made by blending fresh peach puree with champagne. It’s sweet, refreshing, and perfect for a brunch or afternoon gathering.
  4. Strawberry Champagne Cocktail: This refreshing and easy-to-make drink is perfect for summer parties. Garnish with some sweet, fruit and let the party begin.

Whether you prefer your champagne straight up or mixed into a cocktail, one thing is for sure – those bubbles are what make this drink so special. So, pop open a bottle of bubbly and raise a glass to the joy of bubbles!

Classic Champagne Cocktail:

  • To make it, simply add a sugar cube and a few dashes of bitters to a champagne flute
  • Top with chilled champagne

French 75:

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Blend until smooth, then strain into a champagne flute and top with chilled prosecco or champagne

  • 1 tbsp simple syrup
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 oz of vodka.

So there you have it, my fellow sparkling wine lovers – a fun and light-hearted ode to popping bubbles and enjoying all that this delicious drink has to offer.
