What is the best sound of the holidays? The pop of the champagne cork of course! Champagne has always been a traditional addition to New Years Eve celebrations in my family home growing up, and of course continues to be one now!
I am definitely not a champagne connoisseur, as you may be able to tell with my use of Yellow Tail Sparkling Wine in the video . . . why would I waste good champagne on something that is baked?!?! For cooking/baking purposes this brand is great . . . relatively cheap (not as cheap as Baby Duck!), has a definite champagne taste that stays throughout the baking process, and it doesn’t taste too bad when you drink the rest of the bottle when you’re done baking these cupcakes . . . using the bottle or a flute to finish it off works either way
