When to Drink Champagne

Friday, July 15, 2011

"I drink Champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it when I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it–unless I'm thirsty."

–Madame Lilly Bollinger

Tell me, darlings, when do you drink Champagne? I particularly love drinking it with girlfriends–John just doesn't get as excited about bubbly as I do!

  4. I drink champagne with cake, as a special treat (one time I did this a few months after I filed for a divorce, while wearing my wedding dress, and then I cut up the dress into a Halloween costume. LOL!) And I drink it with a good Sunday brunch.. but my favorite time to drink it is with oysters. :]

    also one of my favorite quotes from Dom Pérignon: "come quickly, i am tasting the stars" the moment he tasted his first batch of champagne

  12. If it's available..I drink it. I don't wait for a special occasion. Life is too short. So we have it on a Wednesday night just because!

  13. LOVE that quote! Kyle and I drank some last night whilst watching Big Love. So I am pretty much game to drink it whenever and since it is generally reserved for celebrations, I feel like drinking it on a normal day makes it a little more exciting.

  17. okay you're going to laugh--the chef and i were just friends for many years. i was dating someone else for many of those years and he was at culinary school in ny.

    he comes back, has been back for a few years, i'm single and neither of us has anyone to go to church with so i have a mutual friend who mentions to him, 'hey can she go with you?' so fine he says yes and we pick a meeting point, i hop in and we church it for a couple months.

    one sunday i say okay let's go for brunch, my treat b/c you always drive so we go for brunch and he orders a bottle of champagne.

    NO JOKES. can you say tossed after church??

  19. haha, when I read the title I thought to myself, when is there a time to NOT drink champagne? ;)

  20. I was keeping a bottle cold in the fridge for celebrating, but everyone just kept telling me they were pregnant and I ended up celebrating alone ;)

  21. How funny, I was just at the grocery store this evening and passed a champagne display and was sooo close to buying myself a bottle, just because! I think champagne is my favorite drink. I drink it at weddings/events when it's available and on special occasions, but most notably at the big holiday dessert & champagne party my family throws every year. It's one of the few drinks I could stick with all night and be fit as a fiddle the next morning :)

  22. I drink champagne with YOU! And mimosas with brunch, of course. And the first night in our new house :)

  23. I adore Champagne. I love drinking pink champagne in the evening with a fantastic dessert or I will drink a light bubbly mixed with OJ & paired with Sunday brunch. LOVE. Happy weekend. xx veronika

  33. Let's see I drink champagne as often as I can...I actually had three glasses today...just because life tickled my fancy and I wanted to tickle it right back :-) I hope you had a great weekend! xo

  34. I have to agree with you that boys just don't get as excited as us girls do about these kinds of things. I love a little bubbly with breakfast, with lunch, with dinner, with dessert, with a manicure, with so many different things :) Xo

  35. Love this! Our house is full of champagne right now because we are so recently engaged, and I keep thinking we need the right moment to drink it... but I suppose the right moment is right now!

  36. what a great quote!!

    i can't help drinking champagne whenever i have beautiful fruit around the house, they always seem like they were made for each other :]

  37. I consider a weekend a slight failure is I don't drink champagne at least once :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I never touch the stuff unless I am thirsty too! ;) Amazing quote! I love the bubbly! Just like it is always 5 o'clock somewhere, there is always a reason to celebrate! xo Samantha
