December is here, and it is unofficially the party season. Or at least it seems that way. Work parties, cookie exchanges, get togethers with friends, family events, and New Years Eve is right around the corner as well…it really doesn’t seem to end this time of year. I am not complaining at all, I love getting together with others and having an excuse to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine with a few appetizers.
Freixenet(pronounced “fresh-eh-net”) sent me a bottle of their Cordon Negro Brut and Cordon Negor Sweet Curvee. I put them to great use over Thanksgiving. We had my parents, my brother and sister in-law, and a friend join us. Pomegranate Mimosas were the perfect drink to enjoy while snacking and waiting for the big meal. A little sweet and a little tart with plenty of bubbles, everyone came back for seconds. I like my drinks to be light and fresh. That way I don’t feel full when it comes time to eat, and these mimosas were exactly that.
I am headed to a cookie exchange on Sunday night, and we always have sparkling wine while we enjoy a few snacks and sample a few cookies. This year I am bringing a bottle of the Freixenet Cordon Negor Sweet Curvee to the party. Add a few dried cranberries for a little something extra, and I know everyone will enjoy it.
