Video: “Champagne” is more than something for your monocle to fall into when you’re outraged. Though it connotes luxury, there are many less expensive (but lower quality) options you might be fed when you try to get the fizzy stuff for cheap.

Call me basic if you must, but I love New Year’s eve. Whether you’re dancing yourself clean or just hanging at a house party, getting dressed up in shiny, sparkly garments and drinking shiny, sparkly drinks is fun, damn it. Not only is the Kir Péttilant as fancy and festive as they come, it’s extremely easy to make, and it looks stunning in photos.

I don't always stay up until the stroke of midnight on New Year's, but you can bet your buns I am this year, if only to watch 2016 die (and make sure it stays dead). I assume most of you will be doing the same, so why not do so in style, with a fancy, festive champagne bar?

Australian Christmas lunches (or dinners) are strange. We've kept all the traditional heavy foods -- roast ham and turkey and chicken and potatoes and gravy and all that good stuff -- but we also eat it in up to 40 degree heat. With all that meat you'll want to pair a red wine, but in hot weather we'd much rather have something to cool us down. This is why chilled sparkling red wine is the traditional -- but recently neglected -- wine pairing for a perfect Aussie Christmas meal.
