Champagne Day (Oct 21st) Should Be Every Day!

“What are you waiting for?” I asked a friend who said she had a bottle of 2004 Dom Perignon chilling in her frig.

“A special occasion,” she quickly replied.

“Isn’t taking time out to celebrate our friendship with an in-person visit ‘special’ enough?” I replied.

“Isn’t our being friends for over 40 years’ excuse enough? That we’re in the same place at the same time for the first time in ages. That we’re both happy? That we like the people we’ve become?” I continued.

“You reward yourself by shopping for a new pair of shoes, a new shade of lipstick or a frosted mocha whatever… why isn’t champagne part of that ritual too?”

Yes, it’s #ChampagneDay and the world is raising its collective glasses to toast the love of the bubbly and its celebratory characteristics.

But wouldn’t the world be a better place if we found more reasons to drink champagne than special occasions like weddings and birthdays and such?

Is good champagne such a wild indulgence that we have to wait for our next bottle or glass?

So I did the math.

A nice bottle of Dom is $149 (ok maybe it’s up to $169) at Costco who is the largest seller of Dom in the world. Nice notoriety.

That’s $21 a day for a week or 2 really just ok glasses of wine by glass at your local hang.

Take it down a notch to Moet 2006 (another special bottle) at $79 at Wine.com.

Now it’s the cost of 1 so so glass of wine a day or 4 bottles of your ‘pour me some sanity’ white that’s in your frig. It seems do-able to me.

I love that special feeling of anticipation as the cork is popped, the first rush of bubbles into the glass. Add a small but splendid bit of something salty (popcorn is my favorite choice) and you’re all set.

And you can keep the bottle for a few days in the frig with a teaspoon in the top – or a not-so-fancy champagne stopper too.

Best of all, your glass of Dom would have been $79 each or $315 a bottle at The Bernards Inn in NJ so you can feel blushed and flush by ‘indulging’ at home.

I’m all for making #ChampagneDay every day. Maybe once we’re through this crazy election we can talk about making it happen.
