New Year’s resolutions aside, there are many good reasons to drink a bit of bubbly over the holiday season. Utah may have some strange liquor laws, but the liquor stores boast a wide variety of sparkling wine, Champagne and prosecco to ring in the new year in style.
We asked Caitlin Doyle of Vine Lore to give us some suggestions on the best bubbly for your budget this holiday season. All are available at Utah State Liquor Stores (tax not included).
In Dishing issue 7, on stands now, are some creative cocktail recipes to get your celebrating started out right. Pick up an issue today or click HERE for a link to the “Feeling Bubbly” article.
Not a D.I.Y drinker? Check out the The Après Lounge at Montage Deer Valley. Located at the base of Ruby and Empire Ski lifts, The Aprés Lounge is open from noon to 4 p.m. daily. Take a break from the slopes and warm up next to the fireplace with a glass of Veuve Cliquot Champagne.
Special for this season, Montage is celebrating the 200th anniversary of Madame Clicquot inventing rosé d’assemblage. To celebrate, The Après Lounge is introducing #RoseApres showcasing Clicquot’s Rosé labels paired with Tsar Nicoulai caviar.
Either way, your troubles, like bubbles will vanish in air when you ring in the new year, with a fizzy cocktail and good friends. Cheers!
