If your biggest champagne problem is that you literally cannot afford champagne (you know, the bubbly grape juice that comes from Champagne, France), you’ve found your people.
But because everyone deserves to feel their fanciest without spending literally a week’s worth of mac ‘n cheese on ONE single bottle, affordable sparkling wines exists. Here, actually good brands that cost less than $30 a bottle. These are all best served chilled, unlike you when the beat drops. Bottoms up, baby!
