The best way to end a 52-year drought? By guzzling champagne, of course.

Fresh off their Game 7 win against the Golden State Warriors, the Cleveland Cavaliers celebrated in pretty spectacular fashion — by popping bottles of bedazzled, $5,000 champagne.

ESPN Sports Business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted a photo of a bottle of Moët Nectar Imperial Rosé — emblazoned with a crystallized Cavs logo — on June 19, writing that the wine will be sold in nightclubs for $5,000 a bottle.

As CBS Sports points out, the Moët labels also feature a map of Ohio landmarks. Moet & Chandon is the official champagne of the Cleveland Cavaliers and similar bottles, personalized for LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, were photographed back in 2014.

Being that the victory marked the city of Cleveland's first major sports title in more than 50 years, the team had the perfect excuse to pop the bottles on Sunday night — which they apparently did, in their locker room.

Of course, as many social media users point out, it's unlikely that the vast majority of Cleveland residents will celebrate in similar fashion.
