Does a champagne spoon really keep your bubbly bubbly?
While some people think putting a spoon into your bubbly bottle to save the bubbles is an old wive’s tale, I am here to tell you that it actually works!
Now, let’s face it, there are millions of bubbles in a bottle of sparkling wine somewhere around 49 million actually. So the second you pop the cork, you’re already losing bubbles naturally.
And there are several ways you can keep your bubbly bubbly after you pop the cork, for us over here, there’s nothing easier and more fun (and safer) than a champagne spoon.
Science Behind Champagne Spoon
There, of course, is science behind this champagne spoon trick, it’s not just random. But it’s quite simple: take a spoon and put the handle inside the bottle and put the bottle in the refrigerator just like that. The metal from the spoon helps to cool the air inside the bottle and because of that, the air is more dense creating a blanket over the surface of your bubbly so that your bubbles can’t escape.
How to Use the Spoon
This champagne spoon “trick” is so easy and will work on your open bottle of bubbly for up to 3 days. So once you open your bottle and pour your first glass, take the spoon, put the handle into the bottle and place your bottle in the refrigerator.
The spoon does not have to be touching the liquid, it simply just sits in there creating the blanket over the surface. And contrary to popular belief, there’s no “magic” spoon, any metal spoon that fits inside the bottle will work, but of course, we do have the perfect Bubbly Side of Life spoon just for you.
I personally use my champagne spoon over a champagne stopper that locks 99% of the time. Why? Well, remember all those bubbles I mentioned, let me just say that there has been more than one occasion when I removed the champagne stopper and it went flying and ricochetted off of the ceiling, oven hood, and walls…barely missing light fixtures.
While that gave us quite the laugh, it was also quite scary because corks fly out at upwards of 45mph, I can only imagine how fast that was going, so needless to say, it could hurt someone for sure.
