A friend emailed me to say that she was going away for a girls’ weekend and bringing a box of champagne. Nice. Very generous contribution. Whilst awake in the small hours I found myself thinking about this. Would she bring a case of the one champagne or a mix?
So I wondered what champagne would it be? What was her favourite? Everyone has their favourites. My husband’s preference is for Mumm – lovely fine bead and yeasty flavours. I prefer a more toasty champagne such as Roederer or Lanson. Though for those everyday occaisions (where $$ are a consideration) Piper Heidseick is nice.
I pondered this: would you just bring your favourite or take the opportunity to do some tastings – try a range of champagnes and compare?
5-6 women. That means that at any given time you would need to open at least 2 bottles. I reckon to be on the safe side you’d want to have 3. I tend to drink my first glass very quickly. Hell, I drink the next glasses quickly too. There’s something about those bubbles that makes you just want more. Easy drinking I call it.
Whatever they do, I’m sure those women will have a hoot of a time. I can just imagine them lounging on sofas, sipping champagne and giggling away – until they start to laugh uproariously as only a group of women can.
