Popping a bottle of sparkling wine is one of the best ways to celebrate any occasion. However, after the celebration is over, you might be still left with some sparkling wine in the bottle that you have no idea what to do with. If you feel this dilemma often, you have come to the right place.
Here, we give you a list of clever ideas to use your leftover sparkling wine.
Whip up some cocktails
One of the best ways to use your leftover sparkling wine is to turn them into delicious cocktails with a punch. You can use some fresh fruit juices and herbs and mix them with sparkling wines to create some delicious concoctions.
Freeze into cubes
If you don’t want the hassle of making a cocktail or anything else with your leftover sparkling wine, you can simply pour it into an ice tray and freeze it to create ice cubes. You can use these ice cubes in your cocktail whenever you want.
Soak your fruits for breakfast
Another simple and effective way to use your leftover sparkling wine is to soak your fruits for breakfast. Sparkling wine marinates them to give a rich texture and tangy taste. You can marinate apples, pears, peaches, oranges, and various other fruits in your sparkling wine. Eat these fruits with freshly made pancakes for a fantastic breakfast.
Make champagne vinaigrette
If you don’t want to work with your leftover sparkling wine, you can simply let it sit for a few days in a bottle for fermenting. The fermentation turns it into vinegar that you can use in your dishes. Add some shallots, salt, lemon juice, honey, and olive oil to turn your sparkling wine vinegar into a delicious vinaigrette.
Add it to your risotto
Risotto is an Italian dish in which rice is cooked in a sauce with butter and seasoning. Adding sparkling wine to your risotto can give it a rich flavor profile.
Bake some delicious sparkling wine cupcakes
You will love some delectable sparkling wine cupcakes if you have a sweet tooth. To make these cupcakes, simply add some sparkling wine to your cupcake batter. You can also make a cupcake sponge and soak it with your leftover sparkling wine.
Add it to your bath
It is not necessary to limit your leftover sparkling wine to the kitchen. You can use it in your bath too. Sparkling wine contains natural antioxidants that can add a glow to your skin. You can also use it to exfoliate your face and body. It helps remove impurities from your skin, making it smooth and soft after the bath.
