Keeping Champagne Bubbly...

My friend and I were considering having my birthday party this summer at her private pool, which allows food and drink but no glass. I live very close -- a few blocks away -- and have no problem switching some wine into some plastic bottles to carry it over. Would the same work for champagne?

  1. I wouldn't try it. You might try buying some of the cans of Sofia, the Coppola sparkling wines that comes in cans like soda pop.

      It's not the best, but that was going to be my suggestion, too. It's fine for a pool party, assuming it's not particularly formal (which I doubt, as the OP mentioned plastic).

        I think it's as good as OP is going to find that's not in glass.

    2. I haven't tried this with a sparkling wine, but when i want to take wine to a glass-free beach or park, I use a Klean Kanteen from It's stainless steel and doesn't impart any flavors to the wine. I've been pleased with it.
