CHAMPAGNE ON ICE – PART DEUX
– Candy Champagne
On March 12th, I wrote about trying Moet’s Ice Imperial. It was the first champagne that I have tried that is recommended on ice.
When Dr. Champagne saw the blog, he said we needed strawberries, mint and bigger glasses (I am attaching pictures of the glasses that Moet suggests that their Ice Imperial be enjoyed with – their website suggests a large cabernet-like glass).
Dr. Champagne was absolutely right! When we tried the Moet Ice in the larger glasses with strawberries and some crushed mint (on ice, of course), it was completely different. It wasn’t as sweet and dessert-like from our first experience. It was light, refreshing and very pleasant.
I still prefer a drier champagne (I am a Brut kind of gal), but I could definitely see myself drinking this in the summer, by the pool, on a beach, or “just because”.
