Bill Murray is one of the most celebrated figures of the late-20th and early-21st century American culture. He has attained this lofty position as cultural messiah through an effortless series of hilarious movies, public appearances and an attitude so cool it’d make Frank Sinatra jealous.
And if his timeless movies weren’t enough, he now bequeaths his omniscient knowledge of how to binge drink champagne with the world. From the legend himself:
“I learned how to drink champagne a while ago. But the way I like to drink champagne is I like to make what we call a MONTANA COOLER, where you buy a case of champagne and you take all the bottles out, and you take all the cardboard out, and you put a garbage bag inside of it, then you put all the bottles back in and then you cover it with ice, and then you wrap it up and you close it. And that will keep it all cold for a weekend and YOU CAN DRINK EVERY SINGLE BOTTLE. And the way I like to drink it in a big pint glass with ice. I fill it with ice and I pour the champagne in it, because champagne can never be too cold. And the problem people have with champagne is they drink it and they crash with it, because the sugar content is so high and you get really dehydrated. But if you can get the ice in it, you can drink it supremely cold and at the same time you’re getting the melting ice, so it’s like a hydration level, and you can stay at this great level for a whole weekend. You don’t want to crash. You want to keep that buzz, that bling, that smile.”
You sure do want that buzz.
So go out, get a case of champagne, a whole mess of ice, a garbage bag and treat yo self to a consequence-free weekend of drinking France’s finest champagne (read, Andre or Cook’s).
