If it’s time to celebrate, then it’s time for a Barefoot Bubbly review!
What are you celebrating?
I subscribe to the tenet that one doesn’t need much of an excuse to celebrate.
Found my keys in under five minutes? Didn’t trip on my run? My favorite snacks are on sale at Costco?
Specifically, time to crack open the Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato!
I have literally opened a bottle simply because I made a cake and invited a few friends over.
Life is short (and long) and it doesn’t ever, never ever, hurt to enjoy a glass o’bubbly for whatever reason you deem appropriate.
There are leftovers in the fridge and I don’t have to make dinner? I found all the sock’s mates from the dryer? My crabby neighbor smiled at me?
ALL reasons you need pink bubbly for a celebration!
A gentle recap: any celebration deserves bubbly.
It’s a motto to live by, y’all!
If you ask me (I know yer wondering): This is one of the best champagnes for $20.
Technically, it’s not a literal champagne, but a bubbly Moscato.
Moscato is sweet, so when you add bubbles, it’s reminiscent of the best sweet champagnes.
A gal can dream!
Either way it’s light, delicious, an adorable pink hue and under $20 – it’s a stinkin’ steal.

Where in the heck can you find a delightful bottle?
Luckily, it’s not too hard.
Try locating a bottle locally. You’ll save a couple of bucks per bottle (that’s right, you’ll def need more than one bottle).
Start with a local Specs or grocery chain..
If they don’t have it…
If you can’t find it locally, get to ordering!

The most important tips to remember once the cage is off:
#1: Point bottle away from you and start to slowly turn the bottle while holding the cork in place OR slowly turn the bottle while slowly turning cork in opposite direction.
#2: As the cork starts to come loose, keep slowly turning the bottle while slowly pulling the cork until you hear the soft POP!
FUN BUBBLY BONUS: How to Weekend 101
My sister came to visit on a weekend.
We had a little bit of fun, as sisters are known to do.
OK, fine, we had a little bit more than that…
We had two bottle worth of fun!
If you look closely, there’s also cake on the table.
Cake and Pink Champagne?!
It’s how to weekend, y’all.
Perhaps I should write an e-book, so everyone can weekend like we do.
Mmmmm, pink bubbly and cake weekend.
If you leave here with only one thought, I’d like it to be this: Do not be fooled by the Barefoot brand.
Wondering how much Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato will set you back?
Ever’where I go, I see it for around $10 and change – THAT’S IT!
The enjoyment of those sweet tickly bubbles is worth every penny.
We weekend right, mah babies.
PRO LIFE TIP: It’s always a smart idea to hydrate when weekending, with any alkeehols
Witness my fridge: I practice what I preach.
The absolute truth is, I try to keep a bottle on hand at ALL TIMES! because you just never know when you’ll have reason to celebrate.
No snow on the ground? You found one last cookie in the bag? Someone said you look too young to be a grandmama?!
See how important it is to keep a bottle on hand?
