Tips

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it okay to mix champagne and tequila?

It’s more than okay – it’s surprisingly delicious! This combination is all the best things about a bubbly, celebratory champagne with the clean, earthy finish of tequila.

What is Prosecco? And what’s the difference between Prosecco, Moscato and Champagne?

Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine, whereas Champagne is a sparkling wine that can only come from the Champagne region of France. Prosecco is generally a little less expensive, and often labeled as extra dry or brut, which have a distinct sweetness.
Moscato is another Italian sparkling wine, and tends to be the sweetest, most floral version of these three popular sparkling options.
