Remember last year when you read all about Veuve Clicquot’s “Cliquot Carnaval” at the newly opened Thompson Hotel? It was a foodie event with Padma Lakshmi, Solange Knowles, flowing bubbly and lots of good bites. This year it’s back on February 20, promising to be much bigger.
The event will be ticketed, with admission costing $100 (click here to buy). Food will be varied this year and available for sale from local food trucks to contribute to the festival feel. Leave the kids at home, no really, leave them because they aren’t allowed, dress in some festive resort wear (this means a hat too) and come join the party.
Instead of the hotel, it will be held at Museum Park and feature those voluptuous Samba dancers, sand castles, lawn games and three different takes on the Champagne: Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Non-Vintage Rosé, and the brand new Clicquot Rich, which will be for sale by the glass or the bottle. This might be the best way to sample them all and figure out which is your favorite. Clicquot Rich recently launched in Miami, at a private affair with Gabrielle Union and friends.
Formulated in honor of Madame Clicquot’s sought-after fine champagnes, Clicquot Rich embodies all the essences of the Veuve’s long-lasting history in creativity, versatility, and originality. The rich and sweet blend mirrors the times of the past when Russian royalty considered Madame’s sweetest champagnes the finest of them all. They would even add more sugar to sweeten them!
How does Clicquot Rich set itself apart in the Veuve portfolio? Developed with the highest grade of champagne currently on the market, the brand was created using the mindset of mixology and innovation. Due to the sweetness of the alcoholic beverage, it is purely suited for a glass on the rocks or to be fused with fresh ingredients such as cucumbers, raspberries, herbal teas, grapefruits, and even peppers.
