Recently we were introduced to the Chambong, touted as the “rapid way to drink champagne”. Our experience? A lot of fun, sure to provide many laughs, and probably not something you should do in front of your children 😉 Oh, and as Ashlee learned, don’t pull your finger off the bottom too quickly or you may get it in your eye 🙂
Here’s what the inventors of Chambong have to say about their product:
Why not push the limits of party science? We are artists, dancers, drinkers glass blowers, businessmen, scientists and friends with a belief that friendship and community are key to a happy life. That’s why we weren’t satisfied with the current champagne drinking experience.
We want classy without pretension. Rituals without exclusivity. And most importantly, an experience that feels magical.
We made the perfect champagne drinking device and now, it’s available to you.
Always Chambong responsibly. – www.chambong.co
Friends of ours shared a pic of Bellini Pops on their Facebook page and we at Nearly All Things immediately hit the web to buy some. Guess what – they aren’t available in the U.S. – bummer! There are a couple of companies making cocktail popsicles here, but most were sold out prior to Memorial Weekend. Soooo – I decided to make my own! This was inspired by our friend Allison’s watermelon cucumber cocktail – which was DELISH – thanks Allison!
- 2 heaping cups of cubed watermelon
- 2 tbsp diced cucumber – My first couple of batches had too much cucumber – not recommended! I also was happier with a normal cucumber rather than an English Cucumber (which is shown in the video below)
- 1 1/2 shots vodka – or go for 2 if 1 1/2 just doesn’t seem like enough 😉
You will also need:
- Small funnel – I bought an Icicle Funnel from Amazon (shown below) and it worked great and was super easy to use – comes in a set of 2.
- Popsicle molds – I used Zip-A-Pop disposable DIY Popsicle Molds (BPA Free and FDA Approved) – Highly recommended and can be used for all kinds of fun popsicles for kids! (Also shown below)
Yields : 3 popsicles
Once you have the tools, have fun with this! Try your own concoctions – Pinterest has a lot of great ideas too. Be sure to come back and comment if you find any other winners! Here’s a video of my first attempt at making them. We are getting crazy hi-tech here people!
