Happy House Warming :)

There are some events that just scream champagne, New Years and wedding toasts come to mind.  But in my opinion, there is nothing better than enjoying good wine with good friend.  Elise's and My friend Whitney just purchased her first residence, and that occasion definitely called for champagne.  A few of us girlfriends got together before going out to the Plaza Art Fair to enjoy a glass of celebratory Veuve Clicquot, one of my favorites.

One of the best things about champagne is that it literally goes with almost everything. Elise and I had a wine tasting a bit ago with a Master Sommelier  and, when talking about pairings, he said when in doubt champagne.  No need to tell me twice ;)

Another fun fact, champagne also has one of the lowest caloric levels of any alcoholic beverage.  While wine usually starts around 130-150 and light beer has 100, a glass of champagne only has 70 (great for all the upcoming holiday parties)!

So make sure to take time and celebrate the big and small things, with a glass of champagne. You know I do!
