Whether you’re living in the Hamptons or LA this season, you’re undoubtedly going to be headed to some holiday dinner parties, if not hosting your own. If the latter is your jam, stocking up on libations for your guests is key. Here’s what fancy, sparkling liquor to get without having to take out a second mortgage on your Montauk cottage.
Roederer Estate Brut | $21.99
Though the priciest on this list – but still unbelievably reasonable – Roederer is the same company that produces Cristal, so think of this bottle as luxury’s little brother. Hailing from California, this bubbly is a touch nutty while also having notes of pear and citrus. Impress your guests with this one – and don’t be afraid to show off the bottle!
Mumm Napa Brut Prestige | $17.99
This baby is the champagne you’ll be drinking with your dinner because it honestly goes well with basically every type of cuisine. For those of you who can pull out the intricacies in flavors, Mumm is often said to possess vanilla, citrus, and melon notes. Bon appetit!
Martini Prosecco | $16.99
With lovely peach and apple notes, this sparkling wine goes down super smooth and is a safe go-to for any occasion. Think toasting to all your loved ones for the upcoming holiday season.
Poema Brut Rose Cava | $10.99
The pink drink – is it really just for summer? Rose is reminiscent of the summer months, so when your next casually chic barbecue falls between Memorial and Labor Day, this bottle will be your new best friend. AND it’s from Spain, so, like, culture.
Barefoot Bubbly | $10.99
People, especially snobbish ones, might have an aversion to the Barefoot label because of its inexpensive price point, but in reality, the average person couldn’t taste the difference between a $10 bottle and a $60 one. Our advice? If you’re on a budget, have the champagne pre-poured into glasses for guests to take when they enter your home and keep the bottle stashed in the kitchen. They’ll be none the wiser.
