I spent the morning giving my collection of champagne flutes a good soaking, scrubbing and drying to get them ready for the holiday season. I'm planning to throw many dinner parties for friends and family over the holiday season, so I figure now is better to get things ready.
One pet peeve I have about serving champagne is that people will accept a flute of champagne, put it down and then forget which glass is their glass. So, because we're all germaphobes, they grab a fresh flute and let a whole glass of perfectly good champagne go to waste.
Solution? Junk drawer time…
Here's the title page from my book SIMPLY GREEN PARTIES. Use a large 1" hole punch to cute out instant wine glass ID tags using old paint chips. Punch another hole and attach to the stem of the glass with a circular binder clip. That way, nobody will lose track of their glass.
