You’re invited

26 Feb

Sunday is like a holiday to many people. It’s that one night (day for some E! viewers) that we leave the doldrums of a Northeast winter behind and bring our sun-deprived eyes to the golden coast. It’s Oscar® night and whether you have a faux red carpet to walk down or you’re going to be watching it from the comfort of a couch, champagne is in order.

You don’t have to attend the Vanity Fair party, to party like the stars, but no matter where you find yourself on this annual occasion, it is important to know how to open a bottle of bubbly.

Patrick Watson of Brooklyn Wine Exchange is here to avoid any embarrassment or breaking of a family heirloom. Thanks to Daily Candy.

It doesn’t have to be Moet, anything that tastes good to you. Veuve Clicquot is nice, but still on the pricey side. Andre actually has a very tasty and non-headachy strawberry (any leftover makes for great champagne cupcakes).

Cheers! Pretend you’re amongst the celebs. Colin Firth will surely be raising a glass. Natalie Portman, probably not so much. I like to channel Grace Kelly.

Now back to my Oscar® picks . . .

    Andre is my "go-to" cheap champagne. Very tasty, and you sure can't beat the price tag!
