Happy New Year, Everyone!
So everyone enjoys a glass of champagne on New Year's Eve, right? That is just what I did. I had bought a $4 bottle of Andre Blush (Pink Champagne from California) for the special event. I don't like champagne and don't know much about it but I can tell you I have had some horrible champagne in the past years. Most are dry, and don't have a very appealing taste that just makes me want to have another glass. Last night however, was a different story. The Andre was good. It was smooth and not too tart. When the bottle was gone, a different bottle of champagne was opened. This one was called Martini & Rossi Asti (sparkling wine imported from Italy). It was wonderful! Now some of you might think that after the first bottle was gone I would be drunk and tasting the second wouldn't matter because it would just taste the same. You're wrong. I had two glasses of Blush and then had Asti and wow what a difference. If I knew the right words to best describe the taste of wine or champagne I would use them for Asti. Now I'm not going to run out and buy champagne at any chance I get but I will remember the names of these, so when the next special event comes along that calls for champagne, I will buy the ones I like.
