Welcome bubbly aficionados to another episode of Bubbly Tales. Today I’d like to introduce you to one of Shaker One’s favorite players:
Purchased at Trader Joe’s, this go-to sparkler retails for under $8. Yes, you read that correctly. It is perfect with mimosas or other mixed cocktails and really very pleasant on its own. I often enjoy a glass or three simply with a strawberry dropped into the bottom of the glass.
And as I am not a white wine drinker, other than the bubbly types, I also use this to deglaze a pan or make a sauce….anywhere you’d use a dry white wine. At this price point I don’t even feel bad if I open a bottle, enjoy a few glasses over two or three days and end up pouring the rest out. Not what I’d select for a celebration or fancy dinner, but a solid choice for your everyday workhorse bubbly. Affordable, drinkable, mixable, cookable…….this bubbly is one to keep on hand.
Give it a try. Unless you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby. Then I’m so, so sorry for you.
