Although champagne is a drink that we rarely drink unless we are famous, we often find a bottle on the table for big events like a birthday or celebrating a colleagues retirement.  Sometimes you don’t manage to finish the bottle and you are left to struggle to find a way to close the bottle of this special  liquid so that it still keeps all the bubbles.  Here is our technique!  

What you need:

  • Clingfilm
  • An elastic band

The steps:

1) Cut a piece of clingfilm.

2) Place the piece onto the neck of the bottle.

3) Keep everything in place using an elastic band and put in the fridge.  That’s it!
