Champagne Wishes

4 Apr

If you know me, you know I have a slight obsession with a few things: weddings, cupcakes, Beyonce, and of COURSE champagne.

Recently, I ran across an idea for a champagne bar on Style me Pretty, and fell in love! What a great idea to give guests the option to create their own champagne flavor. This would be a great idea for an engagement party, birthday celebration or New Years Eve bash.

To make it more interactive, you can also create champagne trivia to see how much your guests know about champagne. Make it fun and allow the person with the most correct answers to take home a bottle of your favorite champagne (my personal favorites: Moet, Vueve)

Here’s what you’ll need to set up your own champagne bar:

– 1 750 ml bottle of sparkling wine = 5 partially filled glasses (A 12-bottle case will serve 60 glasses)
– Allow roughly 2 drinks per person in the first hour, then less as time goes on (more like one per hour, thereafter).

Some of what you should have on hand:
– Orange juice
– Fresh peach juice
– Chambord
– Strawberries, blueberries, cranberries
– Watermelon chunks

More tips:
– To best taste the complex flavors and see the longest bubble trails, use room temperature flutes or tulip-shaped glasses.
– Place the wine in a bucket or large tub filled with ice for 30 minutes before serving.

Cheers!
