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.
