One of  my favorite parties to host any time of the year is a brunch soiree. That goes double for during the holidays. And for me, the holidays start in November! I so love the season, that I like to make it last as long as possible. I can’t be the only who celebrates for two months right? Haha!

Last weekend I hosted a little pre-holiday brunch for a few of my favorite people. Since we had a small group, we kept things simple. Simple, yet so delicious. My husband made his famous breakfast casserole, while I served up strawberries and mimosas. No brunch is complete without mimosas in my book. I used my go-to sparkling wine, Freixenet to make them. I’ve been sipping on Freixenet (prounced fresh-eh-net), as well as bringing it to parties for years. It’s never let me down! Whenever I send the hubs out for some, I say…”Just look for the pretty black bottle!” Haha. I gotta have my Black Bottle Bubbly!

Freixenet is a world leader in Spanish Cava and has been family owned by the Ferrer family since 1861. That’s a lot of family history! You can find the winery outside of Barcelona. Is anyone else tempted to book a trip to Spain? Freixenet proudly uses the method chamenoise method to produce their sparkling wine which denotes the special care they put into producing each and every bottle.

At our pre holiday brunch, we served both Cordon Negro Brut which paired well with the spicy sausage in the breakfast casserole, as well as Cordon Negro Sweet Cuvée which was the perfect partner for the sweet strawberries. Although, traditionally you might think to serve a sweet sparkling wine with desserts, you could definitely get more adventurous with your pairings and try it with pizza or popcorn too!

Something else that I love about Freixenet is its extremely reasonable price point. Both of these bottles are around $12.00. You can see why I always have a few bottles on hand this time of year! I can restock my bubbly stash without breaking the bank and I’m always ready to pour a friend a glass of sparkling goodness!

So, are you a Freixent fan yet? Well, if you weren’t before, you’re going to be one now! This fall, a duo of Freixeent MINI Coopers are traveling the country from New York City to Florida and ending in California. They will be showing up at various retailers with samples, games and chances for fans to find hidden bubbles with reward codes, as well as a chance to win a two year MINI Cooper lease! You can find more information on the places you can find hidden bubbles over at www.findthebubbles.com!

Who says the holidays are the only time for bubbles?  Make it your resolution to sparkle 365 days of the year with Freixenet cavas. Our sparkling wines come in a variety of different styles to suit any moment or mood. Cordon Negro Brut, our classic Black Bottle Bubbly, is great as an aperitif before a night out on the town or at home with takeout pizza. Our brand new Cordon Negro Sweet Cuvee is the perfect match for brunch favorites like pancakes and eggs benedict.
