The Beginning of Popping Champagne | POP酒的開始

The Beginning of Popping Champagne | POP酒的開始

When your friends bathe you with Champagne in a nightclub of deafening music, you may have wondered who on earth would have invented to drain half bottle of extravagant, fine wine, instead of some sugared, chemical liquid. Well, you know him. Everyone knows him. He is the mighty Napoleon. The obsession of popping Champagne began with the French army sabering a blade to the neck of bottle due to their difficult position atop their horses to celebrate their victory at war. But at the end of the day, why Champagne? It is believed that there is something in the bubbles that is truly magical which inspires us to celebrate.

每次你被朋友以香檳灑至渾身濕透,你可能想過究竟是誰天才發明把半瓶昂貴而香醇的美酒如此暴殄?能付起如此不菲代價是當然擁有相當權力的人:他就是鼎鼎大名的拿破崙將軍。在十九世紀初,每逢拿破崙打勝仗的時候都會以香檳慶祝,但由於騎在馬肩上不方便,故向樽頸揮劍。那為何偏偏選擇香檳?相傳,這是因為香檳的氣泡充滿不可告人的快樂和魔法 。
