Dinner Being Prepared And Blending Begins (Page Two)

While the chef works his magic, champagne is poured to get us ready for a delightful dinner! The Laguna Canyon Champagnes are magnificent winning several awards. Laguna Canyon's Raspberry Sparkling Wine brings luscious raspberry flavors loaded with bubbles and fun.

Quotation To Remember: "My only regret in life is that I didn't drink enough Champagne."

Did You Know? - Cobbler refers to a variety of dishes, particularly in the United Kingdom and United States, consisting of a fruit or savoury filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a batter, biscuit, or dumpling (in England) before being baked. Some cobbler recipes, especially in the American south, resemble a thick-crusted, deep-dish pie with both a top and bottom crust.

Cordials are poured

Did You Know? - A liqueur is an alcoholic beverage made from a distilled spirit that has been flavored with fruit, cream, herbs, spices, flowers or nuts and bottled with added sugar or other sweetener (such as high-fructose corn syrup). Liqueurs are typically quite sweet; they are usually not aged for long after the ingredients are mixed, but may have resting periods during their production to allow flavors to marry.

In parts of the United States, liqueurs may also be called cordials or schnapps, while in large parts of the British Commonwealth, cordial means a concentrated non-alcoholic fruit syrup that is diluted to taste and consumed as a non-carbonated soft drink.
