Possible Inclusions For Your Sparkling Wine Gift Set

Liquor Or Non-Alcoholic Options For Your Sparkling Wine Gift

All champagne is sparkling wine, but not all sparkling wine is champagne. Simply, champagne can only be called champagne if it comes from the Champagne region in France.

Sparkling wine can, however, come from different corners of the world. Depending on the country of origin, you get different levels of fruitiness, bubble size, and taste. Some of our favorites include:

  • Prosecco: An Italian sparkling wine with large bubbles
  • Cava: A Spanish wine that closely resembles champagne
  • American sparkling wine
  • Sekt: From Germany with different regions producing different levels of dryness and sweetness

Sparkling wine can be white or rose / pink in color and can range in sweetness and feel. We also offer dealcoholised sparkling rose gift basket options. If you are looking for sparkling wine gifts for her you are in the right place!

Sparkling Wine Pairings With Fruits And Vegetables

Where specified, we send only organic fruits and vegetables with our sparkling wine gift delivery and our sparkling wine cocktails.

We include fresh fruits and vegetables locally sourced and organic where possible.

Sparkling wine pairs well with melons and berries. Very ripe melons have a juicy texture that can offset a dry sparkling wine. Apricots and peaches also offer a juicy contrast to a dry wine.

Sparkling Wine And Chocolate Gifts

This is probably the most classic combination. 

Sparkling wine and chocolate gifts make for a truly delectable treat

The best chocolate and sparkling wine pairings will enhance both the wine and chocolate flavors. 

Some of our most popular orders are for sparkling wine and chocolate gifts – this makes for a perfect Valentine Day gift.

Apart from chocolates, we offer other snacks as well to compliment our sparkling wing gifts. To learn more about the other food accompaniments consult the individual gift descriptions.

Fresh Herbs And Spices

A sprig of mint can add a lively touch to that wonderful sparkling wine cocktail such as a Royal Mojito! 

Other herbs like basil, dill, and tarragon also pair well with many sparkling wine cocktails.  

One of our favorites is the classic French Spritz champagne cocktail, which is perfect for a mild spring or summer day. The fresh herb aromas of rosemary enhances the delicate flavors of this beautiful drink.

Sparkling Wine and Citrus

Citrus fruits such as oranges are a perfect complement for those who enjoy sparkling wines. 

The juice from citrus spoils quickly once it is pressed (especially lemons and limes). The exposure to air and the resulting oxidation can result in a less-than-great sparkling wine cocktail. For this reason we only use fresh citrus fruits for our sparkling wine gifts.

Sweeteners

The sweetener in a wine is derived from residual sugar or what is the leftover sugar after fermentation. 

So, while some wines may naturally be sweet, you can add additional sweeteners to suit your palate. For example, the classic French 75 cocktail was first created in 1915, and is made from champagne, gin, lemon juice, and sugar.

Bitters For That Sparkling Wine Cocktail

With our sparkling wine gift basket, you can experiment with some pretty cool cocktails that would do a bartender proud!

One of the more traditional cocktails called the Champagne Cocktail involves saturating a brown sugar cube with Angostura bitters. Then add cognac, and top it with your champagne.

Sparkling Wine Gift Basket Garnishes

There are many ways to dress up sparkling wine. Garnishes can make that sparkling wine cocktail pop. 

Sparkling wine has a lot of versatility. Because of this versatility, garnishes can enhance or bring out subtler flavors. 

These are some of our favorite cocktail garnishes:

  • Strawberry slices
  • Cranberries
  • Edible flowers
  • Basil
  • Lemon/lime/orange twists

Sparkling Wine Gift Box And Ice

The function of ice in a beverage is to both cool and dilute the beverage. 

Adding ice directly to sparkling wine may dilute its rich flavors. We suggest using ice to cool a bucket of sparkling wine. Alternatively, you can also use ice in a shaken sparkling cocktail. 

Our sparkling wine themed cocktail gifts come with large cube ice trays to help ensure your ice doesn’t break down in a drink shaker or mixing glass. This helps preserve the flavor as you make or sip your cocktail. 

Your sparkling wine box is best served chilled. We recommend about three hours in the refrigerator or about 30 minutes in an ice bucket. 

Glassware For The Sparkling Wine Gift Basket

We can pair our sparkling wine gifts with the right glasses. There are two popular glasses when it comes to sparkling wine: flutes and coupes.

The flute with its narrow opening and long stem is the classic one, of course. Its shape helps to preserve the effervescence of the wine. 

A tapering glass also works well.

Of late, the Tulip Redux has become the winemaker’s choice – the design allowing both bubbles to form and aromas to envelop the drinker.

Cava almost always goes well with meat. But you can also experiment with aged cheese. For dessert, try pairing sparkling wine with fresh cream and strawberries and maybe some macaroons. A simple dish like grilled salmon and rice pilaf can pair well with that sparkling bubbly!
