Veuve Clicquot Rich
What is more synonymous with New Year's Eve than Champagne? This apparently has been a tradition for over 1,500 years. But why limit your consumption of the bubbly to New Year's Eve and special occasions? Why not drink this any night you want to celebrate, or just have fun.
Those who know me, know that when others are ordering 1942 on the rocks, or a glass of Macallan, I've been known to ask for a "Chice." You may ask, what is "Chice?" Very simply, it's my made-up term for Champagne on ice. More than a few bartenders turned their nose up at the idea of diluting their Champagne with ice. Ironically, I learned that Champagne giants Veuve Cliquot and Moet and Chandon share my vision (and low brow tastes!) and developed Champagne specifically designed to be served on ice! Apparently, denizens of Saint Tropez and Ibiza call it Piscine, and I am not so crazy after all!
