Liquor: Send Champagne As A Gift!

Champagne is the most prestigious sparkling wine in the world. But be careful. Not all sparkling wines can be classified as champagne.

Only wines produced in the Champagne region in northeastern France can be called champagne. Our drink gift hampers come with information on the liquor such as:

  • Raw materials
  • Production methods
  • History 
  • Geography 

There are more than 12,000 brands of champagne with more than 50,000 varieties of champagne produced each other. Only certain grape varieties can be used to make champagne, including:

  • Chardonnay
  • Pinot Noir
  • Pinot Meunier
  • Pinot Gris
  • Arbane
  • Petit Meslier

Our customers, especially, love our pink champagne gift set. Pink champagne is made by mixing red and white wines. It’s also known as rose champagne and has gained increasing popularity over the last few years. 

A pink champagne gift set is always a hit around Valentine’s Day.

Fresh Fruit And Champagne Gift Basket 

We include fresh fruits and vegetables locally sourced and organic where possible for our champagne cocktail gifts and champagne food pairings included with our gifts. 

When it comes to fruits and vegetables, you can experiment with champagne, creating some amazing champagne-based cocktails. 

Just adding a few fresh raspberries or blackberries to a classic champagne cocktail like a French 75 can dramatically up the flavor quotient in your drink. 

A strawberry can make a lovely garnish. But you can also make some delectable champagne infusions with strawberry and champagne.

Fresh Herbs And Spices

A lot of herbs and spices go very well with champagne provided you avoid overwhelming the palate with extreme combinations. 

Champagne cocktails garnished with herbs such as sage or thyme are also very popular.

Citrus Notes for Champagne-Based Cocktails

Some juice such as fresh lemon juice, lime juice, or orange juice can add some extra fizz to your champagne cocktail. You can immediately enhance the natural flavors of champagne with some bright citrus notes. 

Not everyone would love champagne on its own. So, mixing it into a cocktail can be a perfect way to enjoy this celebration drink.

Sweeteners In Champagne Gift Kit

Most of the early champagnes were loaded in sugar to suit the tastes of those times. We are talking of the 17th century when champagne first became popular. 

The addition of sugar also helped these early producers of champagne to mask any imperfections during the process. 

However, dry and extra-dry styles of champagne gained in popularity over the years. Because of this, cloyingly sweet wines are more the exception now rather than the rule.

Sweeteners are often key in a champagne cocktail to find balance with the other ingredients for example citrus or bitters. Common champagne cocktail sweeteners include: maple syrup, granulated sugar, and sugar cubes are most commonly used.

Bitters For Your Champagne Gift Pack

A typical champagne cocktail is made with Angostura bitters, brown sugar, champagne, brandy or cognac, and lemon twist garnish.  

Most champagne cocktails can be made with just about four ingredients. This includes bitters, a sugar cube, champagne, and some finesse to the top with lemon. 

Peychaud’s bitters are also widely used in champagne cocktails.

Champagne Gifts Garnishes

You can garnish a glass of champagne in very simple ways.

We aim for the garnish to compliment the engagement of the five senses and create emotion. For example, adding cotton candy as a garnish impacts the: 

  • Taste – Champagne is usually dry, so it adds sweetness balances the drink
  • Visual – It add a nice visual
  • Emotion – The garnish adds a sense of nostalgia 

Some other great garnish options that are sure to add to the occasion could be a spoonful of pomegranate seeds or even a strawberry on the rim of the glass.

Ice For Your Champagne Gifts

Champagne is best served chilled. We recommend placing your bottle of bubbly in a champagne bucket, filling it with water, and adding ice cubes on top. 

This ensures that champagne is perfectly balanced in temperature. The ideal serving temperature for champagne is between 6 degrees Celsius to 9 degrees Celsius. Allow for at least two hours of cooling in the champagne bucket before serving. 

Our champagne cocktail gifts come with large cube ice trays to help ensure your ice doesn’t break down in a drink shaker or mixing glass. 

Large cube ice melts slower, so that flavor from the drinks are preserved as you prepare or sip your drink.

Glassware For Your Champagne Gift Set

Typical champagne flute glasses are typically designed to enhance the drinking experience of champagne. These are stemmed glasses with a tall, narrow bowl that is offset by a long stem. 

The ideal champagne glass is the tulip glass, which is perfect for prosecco and rose champagne. A tulip glass allows the bubbles and aromas in champagne to develop to the full.

A wide tulip can also be considered for the more vintage wines as that brings out the richer, complex, aged flavors.

Champagne Gifts Bar Tools 

We provide professional barware options for all our champagne cocktail gifts. These are bar tools that our mixologists themselves use!

Our champagne gift set shows you how you can put the bar tools, the glassware, and all the ingredients together to craft some delicious cocktails!

Cool Champagne Gifts: Recipes and Instructional Videos

Our champagne gift sets for men and women come with recipe cards and a video that guides you through the drink building process.

Champagne And Chocolate Gift Set

Champagne and chocolates are pretty much a classic combination. But certain guidelines can help you with your champagne and chocolate gift set. 

It can be quite challenging to pair champagne well with dark chocolate, however we take care of the work to develop great pairings!

Milk chocolate is pretty versatile with a wide range of champagnes. White chocolate has a much higher sugar content than dark or milk chocolate, which goes well with a medium bodied or light champagne. Chocolate truffles are a classic choice with champagne. 

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