A number of common drink recipes call for Champagne, however, did you know that you can choose your favorite sparkling wine, instead of champagne.
Champagne is actually just a wine region in France. Sparkling wine from that region is the only wine that can be called 'Champagne'. So the next time you decide to make mimosas, or any of your other favorite drink recipes that call for champagne, consider one of your local sparkling wines.
Here's a drink recipe for you, using sparkling wine, or champagne, if you prefer. This one is from Alize.
