Hi! I wonder what does fleeting joy means in this sentence
"The fleeting joy flickering in the liquid... "
Here the liquid refers to a champagne.
Here "fleeting" means short-lived or ephemeral. The writer is referring to the sparkling nature of champagne and, I assume, the brief pleasure one gets while drinking it. And perhaps suggesting that the pleasure lasts only as long as the bubbles.
