Happy 2015 !

This is my first blog post in 2015 ( I really needed a few days to recover from all the festivities. >_<) and I want to start with some champagne. On New Year's Eve, my brother was so kind to bring along an expensive bottle of champagne, the Moët & Chandon Nectar Impérial. It has started to become a tradition with my family to drink a glass of champagne, eat a traditional, Dutch "oliebol", and snack on some nibbles, waiting for the new year to start. Every year, we get a great view of the fireworks from our living room and balcony. Because of the loud firework, it is almost impossible to fall asleep anyway, so we often stay up until 03:00. It is quite strange, but the older I am getting, the more, I am appreciating quality time with my family.

I don't know if every blogger has this, but I cannot stop myself from reviewing everything new that crosses my path. So just for reference, I will shortly review the Moët & Chandon nectar empérial champagne. It is a demi-sec champagne with an alcohol percentage of 12%. I think taking small sips of it, is the best way to taste the bubbles and the delicate flavor. It is not too sweet and it has a very refreshing, fruity (almost citrus like), flavor. It doesn't linger for too long and there is no aftertaste. It did go to my head very fast and to prevent getting an enormous headache by the end of the night, I slowly took small sips and snacked a lot. There were small toasts with pâté and brie, mixed nuts, chocolates, cheese sticks, and chips on the serving platter. 

Hope you had a great New Year's Eve too!
