A New Way to Drink Prosecco

Chambong - Set of 2

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

Cool Hostess Gift and Creamsicle Drink for Your Memorial Day Party

Creamsicle drink

It’s totally pouring rain here so I think we all need a fun drink!

Creamsicle Drink:

  • Full glass of ice
  • 2 oz Whipped Cream Vodka
  • Orange soda of choice or orange seltzer
  • Add a splash of cream or whipped cream.  Whipped cream has hardly any calories so go for it – live a little ;).  It will not disappoint.

What do you get?  Something that tastes like an old school creamsicle!

Hostess Gift:

If you are like most of my friends we love Prosecco!  This is super cool and delicious for the next time you need a gift.

  • Prosecco of choice- this is mine (see pic)-  I drink lots and lots of this😬
  • A tiny pour of  Pear Rosemary by Root 23 (I found this simple syrup at a local grocer).
  • Serve chilled in a champagne glass.

Give them both in a cute bag with handwritten directions.  Done.  I have a magnum of Prosecco.  It’s fine to give the regular size too.  But, if you are really going for the cool factor – go big!  This is a gift for some of my party hosts this Memorial Day Weekend!  They won’t be mad if they get more than one I promise!

Cheers to the Weekend

Friday! Friday! Friday! I will be having a few of these grapefruit beauties over the weekend.  Possibly in between soccer games – yikes!  A momma’s gotta do what a momma’s gotta do 😉

This can be done several ways but here is the most potent way first.

  • 3/4 full champagne glass of prosecco.  (I love La Marca shown below).
  • Splash of fresh squeezed grapefruit (yes, I mean squeeze the frickin’ grapefruit). If you can’t handle that, then buy some fresh stuff from your local grocery store.
  • Squeeze of lime
  • To add spice, toss in a few slices of jalapeño.  Plus, it looks pretty!

Not a fan of prosecco?  Here’s a different option:

Fill a glass of ice, add your favorite vodka, fill the rest of glass with the Spindrift Sparkling Water (personal fav).
Then add your fresh ingredients; lime, grapefruit and jalapeño.
If you like making drinks, salt the rim while your at it!

Now go get the ingredients –  it’s Friday and you deserve to have an awesome cocktail!
