Why Do We Celebrate With Champagne

why do we celebrate with champagneChampagne has long been the go to drink to mark any happy occasion. Be it a promotion, a celebration even a wedding – no one ever questions why do in fact celebrate with champagne. I mean it’s become so ingrained in society, that until recently I never thought to look into why it’s such a celebratory drink. It was time to really understand why we celebrate with champagne.

I mean think about it. Have you ever been to a restaurant and been sitting next to a couple, where midway through dinner you hear her start to scream. And as you look over, you can see he’s on bended knee (puke) – proposing his heart away.

And after all the hugs and kisses have happened, what do they next? They proceed to order champagne. Never a bottle of vodka or a bottle of whiskey, or even a high end bottle of Bordeaux. Just Champagne.

Best Toffee Vodka That Makes You Very Kissable

Best Toffee Vodka

Before we even get into talking about toffee vodka, ask yourself — do you like the taste of toffee?

What about vodka? Do you like, the taste? How about the light, airy feeling it gives you?

Now, ask yourself this — are you tired of having to make the painful decision between the two? We’ve got good news for you, that’s a factor no more. Enter toffee vodka. Or should I say the best toffee vodka.

Now, you can now buy a flavoured vodka that tastes just like toffee. Sometimes you need to switch things up from your typical night-out-with-the-boys-bottle-of-Smirnoff that leaves you with that

“what-was-I-thinking”

-scrunched-up face (we all try to avoid this face at all costs – it says “I picked a bad vodka, and on top of that, I can’t even handle my choice”) – Not to mention, a bad-tasting vodka leaves you with that horrific after taste that’s likely to put a sour note on the rest of your night.

One of the biggest issues with vodka is that there are just too many brands to choose from. Even worse, each brand has what seems like an infinite number of flavours.

Let’s face it – you don’t want to be that person who brings the generic peach flavored bottle of vodka to the party. Why not mix up your go-to-choice and boost your rep amongst your pals? And if you really can’t be bothered to go shopping, then by all means have a go at making homemade toffee vodka. It’s actually quite simple.

Wine Lovers Get Pranked With Non Alcoholic Wine

I love BuzzFeed Videos. Just the other day I was scrolling in boredom through my Facebook feed and came across a video that someone had posted. It was titled Pepsi Versus Coke Blind Taste Test.

Just the title grabbed me. As always, I’ve been very much into blind tasting and along my wine journey, have met people with the most amazing and unbelievably accurate palates. BTW huge shout out to MW students, because as part of their exams, there’s a huge blind tasting portion.

The video was quirky as with all BuzzFeed Videos, but once it ended, the suggested video is what had me in stitches for a while. It was titled:

Wine Lovers Get Pranked With Fake Wine.

I have embedded it below, however if of course you are in some sort of office environment, don’t play it till you’re home.
