Champagne, a symbol of elegance, enjoyment and beauty. It is also known as the wine of happiness, a celebration of love and romance due to its mood-enhancing properties in very small quantities.

Due to the alcohol, champagne bubbles beautifully in the glass, and is best served on strawberries, another proven aphrodisiac.
A good choice is also red wine, which is not only healthy for the heart, but also is a romantic mood inhancer.
Wine helps prevent the formation of blood clots and reduces blood vessel damage.
In addition, it raises the appetite, so it is perfect if you decide to prepare a romantic dinner for your partner.
Champagne is always served chilled, and you will feel its full aroma if it is kept at a temperature between 7 and 9 degrees Celsius or 44-48 degrees Fahrenheit. This is also why it is usually served in a bucket full of ice.

The glass is held by the stem so that the drink does not heat up too quickly.
