How To Serve Champagne At Home And 5 Tips. Elevate your at-home celebrations with this guide on how to serve champagne flawlessly. Discover 5 essential tips for the perfect pour and tasting experience. Cheers to sophistication in the comfort of your own space!

Top Of The Pops:

Firstly, Top Of The Pops. You only need to remember one thing when opening a bottle of Champagne – twist the bottle, not the cork! No matter how expensive the bottle is, if you follow this simple rule you can open Champagne stress-free every time.

Secondly, Pour like A Pro. If you want to impress your friends at a dinner party then be sure to pour your Champagne properly. Hold the base of the bottle and pour into a glass at a 45-degree angle. This reduces the amount of fizz and shows that you know what you are doing.

The Perfect Glass:

Thirdly, The Perfect Glass. There is no need to worry if you don’t have enough Champagne flutes for your guests. Champagne can equally be served in a white wine glass without any shame; the shape of a wine glass even allows you to appreciate the complexity of the aromas.

Fourthly, Keep It Cool. Champagne is best enjoyed chilled so leave the bottle in an ice bucket ahead of serving. It is also important to hold the stem of the glass, rather than the bowl to prevent the Champagne warming up too quickly as you are drinking it.

Not Just For Christmas:

Last But Not Least, Not Just For Christmas. Often people hoard Champagne in a cupboard for that never arriving special occasion. However, there are a number of affordable bottles of Champagne in the supermarket for you to enjoy more regularly – so get popping!

    My favourite drink and lots of good advice in your post. My favourite is to keep it well chilled, cold champagne is delicious, warm champagne is icky.
