Reason to Be Happy #183:The happiest of alcohols, champagne is the drink of celebrations: babies, weddings, promotions, accomplishments, New Year's Eve. Everything about it is cheery—its bubbles, its effervescence, its cold sparkling in your throat. (One of my favorite drinks: champagne with a splash Chambord black raspberry liqueur with a long, curling lemon peel).
"Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!"
~ Dom Perignon, at the moment he discovered champagne
