Get ready to raise your glass - December 31st is National Champagne Day. While the origins of this national "holiday" are unknown, nothing quite says Happy New Year like a sip or two of delicious champagne, a sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region of France. Although National Champagne Day is also celebrated in October and/or in August, December 31st is the perfect day for a bit of bubbly.
In honor of New Year’s Eve and National Champagne Day, why not start a new tradition this year by hosting a champagne tasting party? Or get your guests into the holiday “spirit” with a new champagne cocktail recipe? As always - please drink responsibly.
