Celebrate the joie de vivre this Mother’s Day


2010-04-08

The best recipes for success this Mother's Day should definitely make sure that a few bubbles are included ... and this year, the ultimate extravaganza in a bottle, Piper-Heidsieck Champagne, suggests you put your bubbles on ice.

While the weather is still reasonably warm, try something different. Instead of a flute, pour your bubbly indulgence into a tall, slightly outrageous, oversized glass and add a scattering of tiny Champagne ice-cubes.

Whether you choose the cuvee Brut, with a bold red label, has its own lively, vivacious and exuberant character as dry champagne. Or, The Rose in its distinctive pink bottle which is as surprising to the eye as it is to the taste buds.

They both give you a reason to audaciously celebrate Mother's Day and joie de vivre!

Either way; a sip from this golden, heavenly draught could easily be termed sacrilege. We say; privilege is more like it...
