Champagnes Are Not Only For Bars & Clubs, They Pop In Kitchens Too.
Sometimes when we pop the champagne, there is likely to be a leftover in the bottle, and instead of swigging it all down, there are other ways they can come in useful.
No! I did not say you should take a bath in it like Marilyn Monroe. Instead, take a walk to the kitchen and see your sparkling bubbles become tasty flavours for your meals.
Wondering what meal you can make with champagne? Wonder no more for we are about to bring you a list of some of the best meals that can be popped up with the drink of the gods.
- Fried Chicken with Peas and Champagne
Your leftover champagne is always useful flavouring for your chicken drumsticks or wings before frying – it simply needs soaking it in the sparkling wine.
Let the chicken be kindly escorted with green peas, as you savour the special deep taste that champagne brings to your tongue.
- Sweet Potatoes and Champagne
Sweet potatoes are already a darling when just fried and eaten with stew or a special onions sauce.
Now imagine all that sweetness drenched in champagne before it hits the frying pan. The flavour just comes out different, enticing and memorable.
- Champagne Risotto
Know what a risotto is? It is made with rice and involves a continuous stirring of the rice to break down the starch.
While adding other ingredients on your list for making a risotto, it only takes three cups of champagne to make it a Champagne Risotto. Remember to stir the rice while cooking till the champagne is completely absorbed – and add a new cup of champagne after the previous has been absorbed into the rice.
Serve with fresh thyme leaves. You’re welcome!
- Turkey Champagne Meatballs
The perfect dessert that comes in tasty on those special nights when you have those wonderful friends over for dinner.
Tomato paste, cranberries, mustard and a cup of champagne is all it takes to make the sauce.
After you’ve finished baking your Turkey meatballs, add them to the boiling sauce and stir to coat. Reduce heat and let it simmer for a while before serving each meatball pierced with a toothpick.
- Champagne Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup
Pancakes are another very filling dessert that can be served on special occasions. How about switching it up a little with a ¼ cup of champagne for that special flavor.
You can as well throw in a tablespoon of champagne while making your strawberry syrup for that balanced champagne experience.
You can serve with a mimosa if you so desire.
- Champagne and Mixed Fruit Smoothie
Pineapple, banana, oranges, watermelons, cucumber or apples – whatever your choice may be in making your mixed fruits smoothie, it is fine.
But take things a step classier by adding a cup of champagne to your sliced or chopped fruits before blending together.
It is advisable to blend everything with a tablespoon of honey or sweet syrup if you please, but be sure that the champagne will give off a memorable smoothie experience.
