Pairing: Movie Night

Popcorn and Prosecco!

Ordinarily, we have movie night every Friday. This week, a newly purchased jar of truffle salt has insisted that we pop some corn and throw in a movie a day early. And, Oh Happy Days, I had a bottle of Cupcake Prosecco ready to go. It's a budget-friendly sparkling Italian wine that pairs remarkably well with our movie night snack of choice, truffle popcorn.

To make the popcorn:
  • Glug a hefty splash of olive oil into a saucepan and heat
  • Add enough popcorn kernels to cover the bottom of the pan
  • Put a lid on it, then give a vigorous shake
  • Wait...
  • When you hear the first kernel pop, start shaking furiously for a bit
  • When you can count two "MISSISSIPPI" in between pops, turn off the heat
  • Pour popcorn into a bowl and sprinkle with copious amounts (or to taste) of truffle salt
  • Toss and serve 
Cupcake Prosecco is not as fruity as some others you'll find and the bubbles sing in harmony with the savory and lip-smackingly good popcorn.
