What is the best way to drink champagne

Champagne is a drink that many people associate with fun and celebrations. If you choose the right appetizer, it will only emphasize and complement its taste.

FoodOboz editorial team has prepared a list of appetizers that will be the perfect pairing for champagne, as well as what foods are categorically not combined with it.

1. Cheese

Cheeses are the perfect appetizer

Firstly, they are a great addition to sparkling wines, and secondly, they will keep you in good shape and prevent you from getting drunk, as the fats in cheeses form a film that prevents alcohol from being absorbed quickly.

Types of cheeses:

  • Brie is a French cheese with a soft texture, suitable for light dry champagne.
  • Camembert - suitable for any sparkling wine.
  • Goat cheese - goes well with dry champagne.
  • Young Cheddar - it is suitable as an appetizer for champagne with a rich flavor.
  • Gorgonzola - goes well with sweet and light champagnes, such as Asti.

Remember, the more savory the cheese, the sweeter the champagne should be.

2. Seafood

Oysters, mussels, shrimps, crabs, scallops, red fish, caviar, sushi will be the perfect pairing for champagne.

3. Ham

Prosciutto is ideal for dry, semi-dry and rosé sparkling wines.

4. Nuts

Not all nuts can be an appetizer for champagne

Some nuts will also go well with champagne, but not all.

5. Fruits

Any fruit can be used for a snack

Suitable for sweet drinks, the sweeter the better.

6. Desserts

Desserts go well with champagne

For such desserts as cheesecakes, strawberry ice cream, fruit puddings, crème brûlée, sherbets, sweet pies and cakes, it is best to take sweet champagne.

7. Chocolate

White chocolate

There is a rule here: white chocolate is best paired with dry or semi-dry wines so that it does not interrupt the flavor of the drink.

It does not go well with champagne:

  • lemon
  • coffee
  • other foods that have a pronounced taste and can "kill" champagne.
