On the list of summer cocktails we love to imbibe, champagne ranks right up at the top along with the classic margarita. It's really an all-occasion drink — start your day off with a mimosa for breakfast, or celebrate a successful day at the beach with a sunset toast. We don't really need an excuse to sip on bubbly, but Chandon's new limited-edition bottle of sparkling wine, which we spotted at last week's NYC launch party, (okay, so not technically champs) makes us a whole lot more excited about it. The so-cute bottle channels an "All-American Summer," and features classic red, white, and blue stripes, perfect for all your warm-weather parties. More than just a tasty treat, this stuff also doubles as the perfect seasonal home decor piece (July 4 centerpiece, anyone?). And, Stacey Bendet, the super chic designer behind Alice + Olivia, is a fan as well—she was so smitten with the design that she created a romper inspired by the print. The exclusive liquor will be available starting this Friday through September 1 at fine liquor stores, or on their website. We'd suggest a DIY bottle project to make on your own, but we think we'll all be too busy drinking.
