Yeah, down my throat and not down the drain. When I first heard about sparkling wine with 22-carat gold leaf (from David Tutera, of all people), I thought it must be very expensive indeed and affordable only for the mega millionaires. Seems not. I mean, Speedy bought a bottle for New Year’s Eve and Speedy is always looking for the cheapest with the best quality anything so it can’t be that expensive.
Blue Nun Gold Edition with fine flakes of 22-carat gold leaf. The gold leaf had no distinctive flavor and they didn’t scratch my throat either. Very light and oh, so pretty!
The perfect accompaniment: oysters on the half shell. :)
