4 top tips for leftover Champagne
Now, we’re all guilty of it: buying a few bottles and drinking the night away only to leave some leftover in the fridge. Sad. Alone. Flat. And that just makes the Champagne sad. You don’t want that, do you?
Champagne should never go to waste and pretty sure it’s a crime in no less than 57 countries. But if the unthinkable occurs, here are 4 quick uses for your leftover Champagne.
Note: This list goes beautifully with the André Chemin Brut Tradition Blanc de Noirs NV. And it’s 50% off right now. Win.
Nothing says ‘party’ like sangria. Yeah, yeah, sangria’s usually all about red wine. But, when it comes to Global Champagne Day, all bets are off and this works a treat. Mix it in flat or keep it fizzy if you’re feeling frisky. It’s your call. If you're looking for a quick and delicious recipe, go here.
2. Ice Cube Saviours
Let’s be real: you’re in for the long haul, so it’s best you plan for it. Fill up your favourite ice cube tray with a good Champagne and say ‘What hangover?’ as you throw one in a glass of OJ. Be extra daring and go pulp-free. Pierre Bertrand Brut 1er Cru NV freezes particularly well this time of year. Just saying!
3. Flat Champagne + Garlic = Fabulous Salad Dressing
We want to make sure we’re eating right and a salad ticks all the boxes. But salads are boring. Well, they used to be. Put some garlic in a jar of flat Champagne and let it infuse before adding it to your favourite salad combo.
4. Treat yo’self (even more)
This day is as much about you as it is the Champagne. So treat yourself to your own little spa day. Made easy when leftover Champagne makes for a great skin toner and gives your locks new life in a rinse.
Now go forth, crack out all the bubbly and try not to have any leftover this time. Cheers!
