You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sundays

In my home, like any other busy home, time is a commodity. Many weeks, work, volunteer organizations, and family commitments keep me and my significant other from carving out quality time. To use a cliché, “We’re like passing ships in the night.”

Last year, a girlfriend visited and gifted a bottle of champagne. The bottle remained unopened for quite a while. One rare Sunday, with nothing on the calendar, we decided to uncork the bottle of bubbly. We sat on the couch, sipped champagne and chatted for a couple of hours. It was the perfect way to spend some quality time. Later on that week we reminisced how much fun we had and committed to making “Champagne Sundays” a tradition.

“Champagne Sundays” doesn’t always mean a bottle of champagne. Sometimes we opt for a Prosecco or Cava Spanish Sparkling Wine. There are also numerous champagne recipes to try. Here’s a favorite:

Classic Champagne Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 3 drops Bitters
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 ounce Cognac
  • 4 ounces chilled Champagne

Directions. Drop bitters onto sugar cube; let soak in. Place sugar cube in a Champagne flute. Add Cognac, and top with Champagne and serve. This recipe can be easily multiplied.

We invite you to join us for “Champagne Sundays.” Check back next week for a new “Champagne Sundays” recipe! Cheers!

Until Then,

  1. Hey Lady, when I was sitting on the plane last week from a business trip-I noticed a few summer cocktail-recipes in a magazine that I thought would be fun to make. Well, I lost track of time and as I was driving home from the airport, thinking of random thoughts, I remembered…boy, I forgot to write down the recipes that I read. I am sitting here smiling because….now I have a cocktail recipe that I surely will try in the future. Cheers back at you! Soror, Donna Rae

  2. Champagne is my most favorite drink. Needless to say we always have a bottle in the chiller. Carving out quality time is very important and the bubbles just make it that much “Wonderful”.
