random word fo the day: A BOTTLE OF BUBBLY

random word of the day:  A BOTTLE OF BUBBLY – butelka szampana (a bottle of champagne) 

(1) You’re probably going to be uncorking a bottle of bubbly this New Year’s Eve.

(2) Nothing says, "Celebrate" quite like a good bottle of bubbly! 

(3) Pop open a bottle of bubbly…yeah.
Here’s to another goddamn New Year.
And outside, 2 million drunk Bostonians
Are getting ready to sing Auld Lang Sine”…out of tune.

(4) Your goal this year should be to saber a bottle of bubbly. It’s when you open a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine by popping the top of the bottle with a sword or knife or other hard objects.

(5) What Champagne should you use to ring in the New Year?  If you’re on a budget, think Crémant d’Alsace. The French have a nose for good bubbly and I’m more than willing to follow their lead.
