Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Keeping the sparkle

Happy Valentine's Day!

I originally wrote this post way back in November of 2010, but felt it was a great tip for today! Many of you will be celebrating with your sweetie tonight and Champagne or Sparkling Wine may just be on the menu! Enjoy!

Keeping the Sparkle:

In your Champagne, that is. Or your sparkling wine, whatever fits your budget and your palate!

Since the holiday season is upon us, there will be parties. Holiday parties usually involve a bit of the bubbly. Today's Tip & Trick is how to keep it sparkling if you don't pour it all on the first round.

All you need to do is drop a silver (really any metal should do) spoon into the neck and store it back in the refrigerator. Ensure the spoon has a little wiggle room above it and is not stuck in place. In my experience, the bubbles will last a good 24-hours, though for taste, it is best consumed within a few hours!

There is science behind this, if you're of a curious mind. Here's a link I found while searching for a picture: To Spoon or Not to Spoon

Happy Celebrating!
