Happy Friday! It’s not only Fizz Friday but International Champagne Day! Not that most of us needed an excuse to drink champagne, but today is known as World Champagne Day – so what better day to play the lotto online and celebrate winning the big one?
It is the time of year to raise a flute to the quintessential wine of celebration, good cheer and toasts to everything – whether you won the lotto or not. Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary, an engagement, a graduation, or a Friday afternoon, there’s always reason to celebrate.
And you know what they say:
There is only one thing better than a glass of champagne. A bottle!
A Brief History of Champagne
On Friday the 21st of October most parts of the world are celebrating Champagne Day, or starting to at least.
Champagne is one of the most loved and recognised drinks around the world. It’s a drink that’s always associated with special occasions and celebrations. It is therefore not surprising that approximately 300 million bottles of Champagne gets produced a year!
If I were to nominate my favourite drink, Champagne would win hands down.
It doesn't matter in what part of the world you are, all you need to do to celebrate is to play your favourite lottery online, then head to your favourite Champagne bar, listen to the sound of the corks popping, rise your flute and with a bit of luck, win the €39 million on EuroMillions tonight!
So go pop a bottle of something bubbly and delicious, remember these little champers facts:
- Ever wonder why you get a little tipsy a lot faster than your usual alcoholic beverage? The reason for this is the fact that the bubbles in champagne cause the alcohol enter your bloodstream very quickly - so take it slow!
- The classic Champagne coupe was adapted from a wax mould made from the breast of Marie Antoinette. Must be a rather titillating experience.
- For the ladies out there, who are watching their gorgeous figures, champagne is definitely the drink for you, as four ounces of champagne is roughly 90 calories, while the same amount of red wine and sweet wine is 100 calories—making it a healthier choice for those watching their waistlines.
- Marilyn Monroe took a bath in champagne. 350 bottles of champagne were used to fill the tub!
- The pressure in a Champagne bottle is around 90 pounds per square inch. That’s equivalent to that of a London double-decker bus tire! So be careful when you pop that cork!
Global Champagne Day is a wonderful reason to accompany your online lottery player experience today. We just have to look at the following lotto jackpot winners, to give us all the more reason to toast a bottle of bubbly:
