Need bubbles for a party but can't quite swing a bottle of French Champagne? Read on for some more affordable sparkling options.
Authentic Champagne is from a very specific region in France and can come with a hefty price tag. If you want to try the real thing, the Perrier-Jouet "flower bottle" is a classic choice for $149.99 a bottle for the 2007 vintage.

This Italian sparkling wine can just as crisp and dry or fruity and sweet. A bottle of Tesoro della Regina goes for $15.99, and it has earned rave reviews for its fresh finish and effervescence.
Spain's sparkling wine is both excellent and on the less expensive side of the spectrum. Marques de Monistrol Brut Cava is just $10.99 a bottle, and it has great reviews.
This sweet, sparkling Italian wine is good for lightweights who prefer things on the fruitier side. Made from the Moscato grape, it will go down a little too easily if you're not careful. One option with excellent reviews is the Armani Moscato Spumante at $16.99 a bottle.
So many of us grew up with Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante, this is something that feels like going home for the holidays.
