Fancy...schmansy.....I would kill for a bottle or two or three of....Weibel's Green Hungarian or fizzy Mateus "Rose" in that funny,squatty bottle to go with the "bird".
Oh well....you can't go wrong with Mumm's Extra Dry Champagne...everybody loves it...only has 12.5% alcohol....so you don't have to worry about ...Granny passing out....or Gramps ..in his "cups"...telling his old ...war stories and grossing everybody out at the Thanksgiving table.....or worrying about your chronically "out-of-work" brother in law getting smashed and having an "un-employment crying jag" either.
Hey...if you aren't in the "1%-ers" and can't afford the "real" stuff (champagne from France".....there is nothing wrong with old......Cook's Extra Dry..from Bakersfield or Fresno...or where ever.....it all goes down the same way.............lol.Hint to the cook....open a bottle of the Cook's before the guests come so you can have a good "buzz" on...pour some into the turkey pan to deglaze (do this only in front of relatives that you dislike but "have to" invite...also the buzz will insure that you won't get ticked off at your cheap mother or sister in law for bringing 3 of the $3.99 pumpkin pies from the Supermarket instead of the home-made ones that she had promised to bring....a good-sized "squirt" of Red-i-Whip, Extra-Rich will make anything taste good be sure and cover up all the "shinola brown" pumpkin pie "skin" (another hint = before you do the Red-i-Whip routine on all the pie slices...put the nozzle in your mouth and give yourself a big squirt...you deserved it ...girl !!!)
