Shop This Look:
Normally people associate champagne with a fancy event or celebration like a wedding or anniversary, but I actually think it makes the perfect pre-dinner drink when meeting up with friends. It is light and refreshing and I always feel a little bit fancy when drinking it even if I am just in jeans and a tee shirt. Today I stopped into The Daily cocktail bar located in the Nolita section of soho. This bar is a neighborhood staple and is the perfect place to stop into for a drink. The inside decor is dark and comfortable reminiscent of the 1800's. The menu has classic staples and five cocktails that change daily which are modern interpretations of classic cocktail categories such as “Stirred Down,” “Bottled,” “Improved” and “Short." On this visit, the weather was just starting to change and it was still early enough in the evening that I sat out in the open air seating area. This is a great place for a catch up and has something for everyone. The dress code is casual so I wore a simple Rag & Bone tee with J brand destroyed skinnies. Cheers!

What The Experts Say:
Brut Premier characterizes the timeless Louis Roederer style with the combination of fresh, youthful fruitiness and the vinous qualities of a fully matured wine. It is a structured wine with a lively attack and a smooth palate. Brut Premier comes in antique-colored bottles that filter out nearly 100 percent of light and are light weight. This vibrant version is finely knit and elegant, with floral, toast and smoke aromas on the nose and flavors of crème de cassis and lemon curd riding the lacy mousse
What I Say:
This is a great balanced champagne that had the perfect combination of fruitiness and bite. I don't like super dry champagne and I found this one to be just right. I would highly recommend this bottle for your next event!
