There is nothing worse than wasting part of a bottle of champagne. Today’s prices make it hard enough to purchase a bottle for special occasions. Pouring part of the bottle down the drain because it went flat and lost its fizz is like pouring money down the drain. It is a waste and can easily be prevented. There is a simple way to revive the bubbles in your champagne so that you never have to waste another drop again.
All you have to do to restore the bubbles in a bottle of champagne that has lost its fizzing splendor is to drop a single raisin into the bottle right before it is about to go flat. When champagne is bottled it contains some carbon dioxide which is what gives this alcoholic beverage its bubbles. These bubbles give this spirited drink a sparkle that is unlike any other.
Once the raisin is dropped into the bottle the remaining bubbles from the carbon dioxide will adhere to the ridges of the raisin. Then those bubbles will release themselves from the raisin back into the champagne renewing its fizz once again.
Now the last few glasses will have the same nose tickling effect the first glass had when it was poured. This little trick is something to remember for all those special occasions when champagne is served.
Enjoy the bottle from start to finish and never waste another drop!
