Something more special than, but similar to, Riccadonna

More expensive alternatives to Riccadonna? I looove the sweetness of Riccadonna but want something a bit less cheap and tacky. So something around the 30-50$ mark (Australian dollar) would be super. I hate dry and tart sparkling wines, but I have also tried some sweet sparkling wines that are too sweet and heavy almost -- like a mudcake that's too rich and sickly. Riccadonna seems light and sweet and fruity as opposed to cloying. Note: I know almost nothing about wines and champagnes, so feel free to teach me things. :)

Hard drinking NY cops from the 20s and 30s

Are there any accounts of cops in prohibition/depression era New York being drinkers? Would drink be widely available to the point where no one would think much of it, or would it be especially difficult for a public employee?

Best margarita-making device for <= $250?

Mrs. Everichon has requested a "serious margarita maker" for her birthday. The SkyMall/Amazon breed of dedicated margarita makers look suspicious and gimmicky to me. What do actual bars use to make great margarita ice? Is there a special device, or is it just a restaurant-grade blender? I see that the industrial-grade Cool Technologies Margarita Machine runs about $3,500; my budget has a ceiling of, say, $250.
