One day you’ll find yourself drinking Champagne. Lucky you!
Start by throwing out the cork. (You couldn’t fit it back into the bottle if you tried, but why would you?)
Next, select a glass. Tall, narrow flutes are designed to preserve the bubbles as long as possible, but Champagne tends to disappear quickly, so why not use a more elegant coupe instead?
Finally, drink the Champagne, and upon finishing, note how much you enjoy drinking Champagne and pledge to do it more often.
Prosecco and Cava, by the way, are also sparkling wines, but they are not Champagne. They too can be enjoyed, but seldom without orange juice.
