Where will your champagne corks be popping?

New Year’s Eve house party is a great time to get away and have fun. Book your Big House,
organise your friends, pack the car with champagne and get out to the countryside. When you
arrive, enjoy a roaring log fire, have a great dinner party together and dance till dawn. The best
thing is with a house party you’ve still got a couple of days to chill and unwind!

If you’re not drinking it, have a go making Champagne Sorbet!

225g granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
300ml bubbly
Stir the sugar into 500ml water in a pan and bring to the boil, simmer for 10 minutes, stirring
occasionally.  Remove from the heat and cool.  Add the bubbly & lemon juice and stir.
Pour into your ice-cream maker and churn till nearly frozen, then  put it into the freezer over-
night.  No ice-cream maker? Just pop your mixture in the freezer for 8 hours & every few hours
stir through with a fork to break up the ice crystals.
Eat accompanied by your dearest friends.

Mugshot moment

For a newsletter based on champagne, Peter seemed the perfect candidate for the Mugshot!  A
partner here since 2002, he now spends his time regularly sourcing additional big party houses.
  Peter has a great love of fine food and wine and his all-time favourite champagne is Krug,
although for party bubbles he turns to Waitrose prosecco.
(interesting fact – wine in a double bottle tastes better than in a single bottle!)
