I'm having a New Year's conundrum this year - cough up $125 to go to a party thrown by friends (not too close of friends, though) or be lazy and have a small get together at home. If I end up doing the latter, I'm going to have to check out these affordable champagne suggestions from users on Epicurious.com.
-Wolfberger Cremant d'Alsace (around $15.95)
-Codorniu Pinot Noir Brut Cava ($11.99)
-Pearly Bay Celebration from South Africa (around $8 to $10)
