CHAMPAGNE IS THE PERFECT SIP FOR ALL SEASONS
When Cher’s character Loretta Castorini dropped a cube of sugar into her Champagne in the movie “Moonstruck,” purists gasped — but hey, at least she got her man. But we can’t condone the sugar cube-bubbly blend. At most, adding some crème de cassis or Chambord to make a Kir Royale is perfectly acceptable but first things first: Champagne comes from the geographical region of Champagne in France, produced under strict French law. Anything else is just sparkling wine.
