Bubbly Doesn’t Have To Break The Bank For New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is two days away and people are buying up bubbly to help ring in the New Year.

When it comes to celebrating with a toast, there are many options.

Some new additions to the classic champagne bottle has even hit the market just in time for the countdown.

“This is our XXIV Karat Grande Cuve and this lovely sparkling wine actually has gold flakes in it and it has a light,” said Elaine Vaughn, the BevMo store manager in Santa Barbara.

The varieties and even cost can sometimes be overwhelming when it comes to champagne and sparkling wine.

“You can go from $6 all the way to $290,” said Vaughn.

She said people don’t have to break the bank to celebrate. She suggested a Spanish sparkling wine called a cava that runs around $16 for two bottles.

People who plan on hosting a party to wrap up the year, they will need to take into account how many people will attend and drink. Vaughn also said not to forget the sober drivers who will help get the rest of the guests home.

“I think that celebrating with your family, kids and especially with the designated driver, we want to recognize that and make them not feel uncomfortable about not having a cocktail, I think Martinelli’s is a great replacement,” she said.

A tip for serving up sparkling apple cider or maybe a Shirley Temple: put it in a festive glass so everyone feels included.

A rule of thumb for a party where alcohol will be served, plan on one to two drinks per person for every hour of the get-together.
