I haven’t made this recipe yet, but I plan to make the float and use a sparking wine, Vertuze. The sparkling wine was launched in 2009, and uses grapes grown in the Arroyo Grande Valley in San Luis Obispo County. Both of their sparkling wines, Rose and Brut, are produced in traditional method of Champagne wines making.

And, I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Fat Tuesday! For those who do not know, Fat Tuesday (translated to Mardi Gras in French) is the practice of eating rich, fatty foods before the Lenten season begins! So, while you are enjoying your Fascnacht, think of what you will be giving up for Lent!
