It’s almost May; do you know what that means? It’s Cocktail Month! I did this last year for each of my columns in The Southeast Valley Ledger throughout the month of May and I plan to make it a tradition. You'll see Cruse Extra Dry featured in this week's edition of The Ledger. I know, it's not quite May yet, but what’s more fun than getting into the spirit of summer than talking about yummy sparklings, wines, and cocktails each week?
I’m kicking it off this year with
a bubbly that is new to me. Cruse Blanc De Blancs Extra Dry Sparkling Wine was introduced to us by one of the experts at Total Wine and was a gem of a find. This one
is produced in France and is very easy on the palate. I like my champagne extra dry – this one
definitely meets expectations.
What’s especially nice about this bubbly is that it is super easy on your
wallet. Coming in at $6.99 a bottle,
this is one that is perfect for serving to your brunch crowd as well. It pairs well with OJ for a morning mimosa
and is delicious straight up too.
During our annual Easter party this year, this was our go to champagne for
our guests. I don’t even want to
know how many bottles of this we went through….the party started at 10:00 a.m.
and the last guest departed at 10:00 p.m.…..it was an awesome day!
You’ll want to try Cruse Extra Dry – a Brut and a Rose are also
available, they may make their way into my cart the next time I visit Total Wine. Once you do give it a try, I hope
you’ll come back to this post and leave a comment telling me what you think!
