Here’s a few suggestions on how to incorporate champagne into your Halloween celebrations.

Raise a glass to the spooky spirits!

I’m sure many of you plan on celebrating with friends by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. So let me be the one to remind you to always respect the dead and honor them with glass! Raise a glass in style with champagne!

Ernest Hemingway’s favorite way to kill an afternoon was with a cocktail made with a shot of absinthe topped with Champagne. In somewhat of a publicity stunt, he named his favorite drink Death in the Afternoon, the same name of his 1932 novel, and submitted it to a celebrity recipe book in 1935. In his instructions, he suggested three to five of these drinks at a time—that’s certainly one way to send you to an early grave!!

Side note – I tried these at the Hemingway Bar in the Ritz in Paris. They will knock you on your ASS!! I stopped at TWO!!!

How To Halloween Champagne Style
Death by the Afternoon – Halloween Champagne Cocktail
Death in the Afternoon – Champagne Cocktail

What you will need

  • 1/4 – 1/2 ounce absinthe
  • sparkling wine (dry)
  • 1 dash simple syrup, optional (1:1, sugar:water)

Mixologist Directions:

  • Add absinthe and simple syrup (if using) to a flute.
  • Slowly top with chilled, sparkling wine.

Notes – Choose a good, dry sparkling wine or Champagne, because absinthe has a particular flavor profile, some may prefer more or less. Though the original recipe calls for a prodigious one-and-a-half ounces of absinthe, we prefer to remain standing after one cocktail. Contemporary versions, including ours, call for a lighter pour. Reference

WICCA and Modern Witchcraft

The modern form of witchcraft known as Wicca was founded in England in the 1950’s. Its members worship nature, and a female goddess. They take an oath to do no harm with their magic. Contrary to many beliefs Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists. There are now more than 400,000 Wiccans in the United States.  But you probably won’t recognize them walking in the streets, since they don’t wear pointy hats.

So maybe on this Halloween you want to stay in and conjure up some self-case by indulging in a WICCA BATH SPELL  – yes it involves champagne!

Whoever you decide to celebrate don’t forget to close all the doors and windows because on October 31, the spirits are out in the open looking to have fun! Be safe, strange things happen on Halloween night.

If only running out of champagne counted as cardio!!

It’s that time a year when it gets really hard for me to stay motivated. Daylight is lacking and it’s cold & wet outside. Plus the holiday season is sneaking up… and my schedule is about to get super hectic! I’m sure you can relate.
Running on Champagne - The Ultimate 10K Playlist

As soon as I must wear more than one layer to run outdoors, I find myself saying “I’ll go in a prosecco…”  and I also find myself drinking way more bubbly at this time of year. “Fizz the season” right? Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, New Year’s and then my birthday. So really, I should be running more, not less.

For many runners, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of marathon training or jumping on the treadmill to burn off those champagne calories; a good music can often make the difference between a fabulous run or skipping it all together.

That’s why I put together this 90-minute bubbly inspired iTunes playlist chock-full of champagne poppin’ beats to keep me moving between all the holiday festivities!

So, if you’re a runner but also like to indulge in sipping champagne, my latest mix is a great for any run!  I’m sure it will help you get in the true holiday spirit and keep you running strong!  But you’ll probably be super thirsty by the time you get home!  What’s your favorite champagne inspired song?

Fabulous reasons why Champagne will never go out of style. Not to be mistaken for sparkling wines like Prosecco or Cava, a real bottle of Champagne, must be made from a combination of three specific grapes grown in the in Northwest Region of France called Champagne. A bottle has about 49,000,000 million bubbles!

Fabulous Reasons Why Champagne Will Never Go Out Of Style

A Sign of Luxury

Champagne is known as the ultimate luxury drink, and nothing says luxury more than Marilyn Monroe bathing in champagne. Yes, the blonde bombshell icon once filled her bathtub with 350 bottles of champagne and took a relaxing soak.

A Champagne Fact You’ll Never Forget

Research in 2013 from the University of Columbia shows that champagne contains proteins that are beneficial for your short-term memory. A study by Reading University in 2013 said that three glasses of bubbles per week can help improve it.

 

Heart Health

Everyone says that red wine is good for your heart, but champagne (which is mostly made from red grapes) is just as healthy. Studies found that the sparkling wine contained high levels of polyphenols – antioxidants found in red grapes but less intensely in white – that can lower blood pressure and prevent heart problems.  In fact, Reading’s Dr Jeremy Spencer, a man who appears to have generously given his life over to finding reasons for us to drink more, suggested that two glasses a day will do the trick.

Say Goodbye to Champagne Poppin’ and Say Hello to Champagne Sabbering!

Sabering is the act of opening a champagne bottle with an actual sword. The traditional technique includes slicing off the neck of a bottle with a single sword stroke —this is a cool party trick I personally have in my back pocket.

Vegan Friendly

Some Champagnes go through a process that uses fining agents like gelatin and casein to clarify the end product, but if you’re looking for a vegan option then Moët & Chandon, Korbel Natural Champagne and Dom Perignon are your bubbles of choice.

“Middle Finger to my Old Life” – Jay-Z

In 2014, Beyonce’s better half Jay-Z, a long time champagne fan, purchased Champagne Armand de Brignac from Sovereign Brands. A bottle retails for approximately $300. Fun fact- Hip-hop, rap and R&B concert goers are 94% more likely to drink Champagne vs the average person.

Fabulous Reasons Why Champagne Will Never Go Out Of Style  Move Over Mimosas

Sunday brunch has just been revolutionized! Champagne is no longer just for mimosas. Try this delicious Strawberry and champagne Pancake recipe and this hollandaise sauce with prosecco on your egg benedict.

Lift Your Spirits

For an instant mood booster, just sip champagne! This is thanks to the magnesium, potassium and zinc it contains.

 “Champagne is the one thing that gives me zest when I’m tired.” Brigitte Bardot

Help Prevent Dementia

A glass or two of champagne could possibly prevent the onset of dementia. Research in Pittsburgh found that the risk in studies were almost halved for those who drank ‘moderate’ quantities. More Champagne health benefits here!

Gluten, Dairy and Fat Free

One glass(120ml) of Champagne has about 89 calories, 0.9 grams of protein, 1.6 grams of carbs and 0 grams of fat!

A good friend of mine recently turned fitness fanatic bought me the Cleo Harper’s Coco Bralet in evergreen and a pair of the Dash Shorts in black.  Both items are feminine and sleek, designed with luxurious and functional fabrics. But to be honest I wasn’t sure if the unique looking sports bra would keep everything in place during my high intensity workouts.

But apparently my friend did her fitness fashion due diligence because it turns out this garment is incredibly supportive and holds everything perfectly in place, nothing moves, zero slips! Even during my craziest cardio sessions, I did not pull a Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl XXXVII halftime show!

So what makes this bra so different? Cleo Harper has the exclusive BodyCapsule™ fabric. The Coco sports bra molds to your body like a seamless second skin. It’s also moisture wicking and antibacterial and is designed to support you with three layers of breathable sports-ready fabric. It has an outer and inner layer of BodyCapsule™ fabric, and a power mesh layer to encase the removable bra cups. (Made so perfectly, the cups don’t pop out or shift when you put this bra in the washing machine.)

Made for any fitness activity, this bra us perfect for the yogis, spinning fanatics, runners, gym goers and cross fitters. In summary, the Coco Bralet is  “Abs-olutely” fabulous and a must have for any fitness fashionistas!

Here are 8 reasons why adding a little champagne to your diet is good for your health. Cheers!

Until recently, champagne was typically consumed by the rich and famous or served on very special occasions, like on New Years Eve or at weddings. But consumption of all types of sparkling wines are on the rise over the past few years. I think it may be in large part to the number of Italian Proseccos that have allowed people to dip their toes in the bubbly category at an affordable price.

So regardless if you’re connoisseur of sparkling wines and sip only the best champagne or if you’d rather have a nice glass of Spanish Cava or Italian Prosecco, adding a little bit of bubbles to your diet can be good for your health, and your spirits!

“Always keep a bottle of Champagne in the fridge for special occasions. Sometimes, the special occasion is that you’ve got a bottle of Champagne in the fridge.” – Hester Browne

8 Reasons To Add A Little Champagne To Your Diet  1- Champagne contains much fewer calories than wine

Trying to keep your weight in check, on a diet or counting calories? Choosing champagne over wine or beer is always your best alcoholic beverage of choice. There’s approximately 78-90 calories in a 4 oz glass of champagne vs 112 – 129 calories in a 5 oz glass of wine (varies between red and white) and a typical 12-ounce glass of beer will run you between 153 -171 calories.

2- Champagne makes your skin sparkle

Champagne contains resveratrol, a potent antioxidant which acts as protection against skin damage. Splash last night’s left-over bubbles on your face to reap the anti-ageing benefits. Champagne is also considered a natural toner, which can reduce inflammation and redness, thanks to the polyphenols  (plant chemicals with antioxidant properties) and tartaric acid. It can work wonders on oily and acne skin as the high concentration of antioxidants will help soak excess oil and sebum, leaving you with a natural glow.

“Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it.” Madame de Pompadour

3- Abundant in anti-oxidants

All champagne is made from red and white grapes which both contain high levels of resveratrol, an antioxidant that prevents damage to blood vessels, reduces bad cholesterol and prevents blood clots.

4 – Good for your heart

Champagne has polyphenol antioxidants that is known to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and strokes. A flute of champagne a day can lower your blood pressure and is good for your heart and blood circulation.

5 – Shiny Hair

8 Reasons To Add A Little Champagne To Your Diet

Rid your scalp of product build-up, making way for oil and other essential nutrients. Champagne can act as an amazing hair rinse and add volume to your locks. Bonus, the golden color of champagne can help bring out lighter highlights, leaving blonde hair with an envy-worthy shine.

6 – Bubble bath

A hot bathtub is a great way to decompress and ease your tense muscles. But now you can turn your every day  bath into an exfoliating treat by simply throwing in a few extra bubbles! The carbon dioxide in champagne acts as a gentle exfoliator and helps to soothe dry skin. The acidity will also leave your skin soft and supple.

7 – Cheer up!

Feeling down? Sip on some champagne as it contains natural trace elements that may help boost your mood, says Tran Ky, MD, co-author of The Healing Power of Champagne.  Double the power of positivity by pairing a glass of champers with a healthy fish dish. The omega-3s will also increase your happiness not to mention the crisp taste of champers is a perfectly delight with seafood.

8 – Salad fizz

Got some left over from last night’s bash? Use it to make a light vinaigrette for your salad. “Replace orange and other fruit juices with champagne” says , Health’s Senior Food and Nutrition Editor, Frances Largeman-Roth. The acidity helps cut through the richness of the oil, making it taste lighter and brighter on your tongue than other dressings. Champagne Recipes 

So drink up ladies!
