There’s nothing I love more than pairing a good blanc de blancs (Pol Roger 2009 is one of my favorites) with something that’s traditionally offbeat: fried chicken, uni nigiri, and even Singaporean fish skin snacks. The crisp acidity of Champagne does wonders to any dish or meal that’s got enough salt or fat to cut through.
But I’m a tad bit more open-minded during this time of year, when I tend to crave for festive and well-balanced libations that I can nurse sans food. So I enlisted the help of a handful of impressive cocktail professionals to help me out—since we now all have to learn how to make these things at home, no thanks to the pandemic. And our bartender friends certainly delivered. Here, come choice Champagne drinks to enjoy and serve during the holidays.
