Refreshing Bubbly Cocktails for Summer

You walk outside. It smells like spring. You raise your hands in celebration. Those long winter months have finally slipped away. It’s time to reach for your favourite bottle.

Spring and summer are the perfect opportunities to enjoy a cool glass of wine. But during the upcoming months, we recommend you try more sparkling wines and champagnes. There is something about the gentle carbonation of these drinks that matches perfectly with the beautiful weather.

To get the most out of your sparkling wines this year, we’ve compiled a few special tips for you. Read on to learn more and start sipping!

1. Keep Them Cool

We’ve all had that moment when we go to have a glass of sparkling wine or Champagne, only to realize with dismay that the bottle isn’t chilled. One of the best things you can do is invest in a wine cooler. They are small enough that they don’t take up too much room. But, they surprisingly hold a lot of wine. Not to mention they are built to accommodate the shapes of the bottles. Plus, if you add one to your home, it can increase its value.

You can set the temperature to cool your bottles to the perfect degree. Before you buy, be smart and do your research. Read wine refrigerator reviews online or go out to view some in local stores.

2. Have a Picnic

Picnics are a centuries-old pastime. They are so simple, yet so fun. And they become even better when you pack your favourite sparkling wine or Champagne. Take it to your favourite outdoor spot, or find a brand-new spot to try out.

A wine-filled picnic is a great idea for a date. You and your partner are sure to feel the romance. Enjoy it with friends as well or by yourself with a good book. But before you take any alcohol into public spaces, make sure you are complying with all your local laws.

3. Food Pairings

Another great idea is to explore new food pairings. For every sparkling wine or Champagne that you drink, try to figure out which foods might go well together. That way, you develop your palette while building up great pairings for your favourite spring and summer meals. Share your pairings with friends and family so they can join in the fun.

4. Keep a Journal

Keeping a journal is a productive way to focus your thoughts and emotions. Why not add a wine journal into the mix? If you try a new sparkling wine or Champagne, write it down. Make notes about how it tasted, how it smelled and other things that you liked about it. This is also a good way for you to remember your favourites so you can come back to them later.

5. Look For Tasting Opportunities

The spring and summer months offer a variety of opportunities to try new sparkling wines and Champagnes you’ve never had. For example, you might attend a wedding for family and friends. Or you might attend a local food and wine festival that has several tasting opportunities.

6. Create Fun Cocktails

Sparkling wines and Champagnes are perfect for spring and summer cocktails. Find a recipe that you love and try it out at a weekend brunch or the next time you get all your friends together. Experiment and even try to make your recipe one day.


Now is the perfect time to reach for a glass of bubbly and enjoy the sunshine. But as always, please remember to drink responsibly!
