Bomb Dom Pérignon

When I got my hands on this bottle of Dom Pérignon 1990, I knew exactly the occasion to save it for. I planned on sharing it with my BFF Maritza for her birthday since it was her birth year wine. Unfortunately her birthday was back in December when I had a terrible stomach flu which…

Taittinger for the Holidays

November is always a busy—but celebratory—month for me. Between my wedding anniversary, family birthdays, Thanksgiving, and the upcoming holiday season, life feels a bit like a whirlwind. Luckily, the one thing I don’t have to worry about is which libation will be in my glass to toast all these special occasions—it’s always Champagne Taittinger. “This…

Hallowine

From bubbly Champagne goddess to cackling witch, my Halloween was a but different this year but it was well spent amongst a handful of close friends with lots of wine. ⠀ We started off by popping some Ruinart rosé, because who doesn’t love Champagne, followed by Viña González Bastías Naranjo Valle de Maule, a fun…

Woman Crush Wednesday + Wine

About last night…#WomanCrushWednesday was in full force with my beffies. We had our first girl’s night since, well, before the pandemic started. And let me tell you, the Zoom happy hours and daily messaging does not compare to cackling and catching up in real life. For this special, and now rare, occasion, we busted out…

Treat Yourself with WTSO

That weekend shipment feeling. Who else gets excited when they see the mailman with a box that needs to be signed by an adult? I do, I do! Lately, I’ve been really into Wines ‘Til Sold Out (WTSO)—an online site with limited deals and steals. Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Pennsauken, New Jersey, WTSO…

Taittinger Tuesdays

Any day is a good day for Champagne, so why not make #TaittingerTuesdays a thing? I am pulling out a Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé for the occasion. My mother-in-law brought it for us from Ireland, complete with the cute carrying case, so we were lucky enough to enjoy it with her upon her return. Pierre…

Cheers to Sparkling Margaritas

When I’m not drinking wine, I’m sipping on some tequila. So it’s no surprise that I’m always up for margaritas. Sometimes, I like mixing my two loves to create some bubbly, yet spicy, concoction. This time around, I grabbed a bottle of Louis Pommery NV Brut Sparkling to create my Sparkling spicy margarita. Alexandre Louis…

Snap, Crackle, Pop, Champagne

“Snap, crackle, pop, champagne!” That’s what my husband says every time we pop open a bottle of bubbly, which lets me know it’s going to be a good time. We recently closed on our first home, which is a good reason to pop open a bottle of Champagne (but, really, do I need a good…

Champagne and Rosé Summer Sippin’ in Biscayne Bay

With Miami’s sweltering summers, June through August is best spent in air conditioning or in some sort of body of water – whether that be the in the chusmeria of South Beach, in your prima’s pool, or in a plastic kiddy tub filled with hose water in your frontyard (not the best option, but desperate…
