Recently into my world has come anew the captivating charm of the classic coupe.
Off and on over the spring we had been watching old episodes of Sherlock Holmes featuring the indomitable Jeremy Brett. They are excellent. Besides all the consulting detective adventures to be had, we were reminded of the pleasant civility found in the flow of the day available with the addition of taking of tea and imbibing of champagne in wonderful old style coupes. With this inspiration in mind, off into the land of glassware shopping I went.
With the safe arrival of the unbroken package by post, as special treat, please enjoy a bubbly cocktail with me.
(pomegranate with blueberry & sparkling water is inspiring a shirt purchase!)
I offer this up with a little toast to your health and to the splendors found in early summer….
Here’s to the adventure found in mixing your very own supernovas to sip in June.

In actuality the champagne coupe is not the best glass to use when one wants to keep the bubbly bubbly, as too much exposed surface area allows the bubbles to escape faster. Modern flutes and tulip shapes hold the fizz much better, but the feel of the classic champagne coupe in the palm beats these hands down. Marilyn and Marie agree. 🙂
And for those of you, who like me do not drink alcohol, might I share a delicious and fun cork popping resource in Val De France. It comes corked with a champagne style wire cage sealed top which will blow across the room when opened. We served it at dinner with a visiting dad (he and I share a love of raspberries). It was a smashing hit!
