Champagne Bread

I had champagne leftover and I decided why not make something out of it. I looked over the Internet and I was lead to this great recipe for an orange and champagne bread. I decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is and how great it tasted. We served it with pasta but it would compliment a soup or salad. It could be paired with fruit and eggs for a fancy brunch.
