Day 1 of the 25 Days of “Cocktails for Everyone!” Gift Ideas – Veuve Clicquot

We have had so many amazing guests on our radio program over the past 7 months, we thought it would be fun to highlight one gift idea each day from those guests  leading up to Christmas.

Gift Idea #1 – A bottle of one of my favorites, Veuve Clicquot Rose from one of the guests on our first show, Chef de Caves Dominique Demarville, which is listed on for $61.99.

“This has the bright savor of a strawberry dipped in sea salt. It’s light, with a hint of smokiness to balance the fruit. Together with the fine bubbles, that fruit savor will clean up after cured sausages and other charcuterie.” 91 Points from Wine & Spirits.

Add to this a copy of the New York Times Bestseller, “The Widow Clicquot, The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It” by Tilar Mazzeo, our guest week 12. 

The Widow Clicquot is someone we should all know about….Long a shadowy, legend-obscured figure, in Tilar Mazzeo’s agile hands the widow sheds her weeds and takes form before our eyes as a distinctly modern entrepreneur….The result is narrative history that fizzes with life and feeling. –Benjamin Wallace, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Billionaire’s Vinegar

The hardcover is available for $17.15 on (list price is $25.99), or you can download it to your Kindle or Nook for around $9.99.
