Attend a Champagne Tasting

Many people have gone to wine tastings, but champagne tastings can be just as much fun to attend. Like wine, champagne is an acquired taste—though many people who don’t enjoy wine do like champagne, depending on its kind, due to its sweetness and bubbliciousness.

To find a champagne tasting near you, just look up your favorite wine and spirits provider. See if they have any in-store events you can attend. Various wineries will surely have champagne tastings as well; just search for the nearest winery in your area and see if you need to schedule a tasting.

Mini Champagne Cans

Juice Boxes for Grown Ups

I thought I had completely discovered my love for Champagne, but I was wrong.  It was a brisk, fall day when my husband came home from a party carrying a present for me.  It was a petite pink can with a tiny pink straw attached to the side.  And inside?  Amazingness. 

I opened the silver and pink octagonal box noting how fun it looked and felt.  Peering inside, I found four petite aluminum cans measuring at 187ml each crafted in a  gorgeous pink that is neither girly nor punk rock, but the perfect shade for sipping.  I pulled out the extending bendy straw, popped the top, and took a sip!
