Happy New Year! Here are some leftover champagne recipes to help you deal with the leftovers.

After all the festivities have calmed, the fireworks next door have failed to burn your house down, and you can finally see straight after too much champagne, you notice there’s still some leftover.

You don’t want to be wasteful by throwing it out…

You could make a mimosa…but orange juice has quite a bit of sugar that you really don’t need…

Turns out it’s great for all kinds of fantastic seafood dishes! Champagne is just really bubbly white wine, so it works great in place of white wine in any recipe. Here are some great leftover champagne recipes to help you use up that leftover bubbly. Don’t worry, these recipes won’t bust your new year’s resolution and will set 2020 on the right track!

One classic ingredient in mussels is white wine, here the champagne does the job of the finest white wine, so don’t throw out that bubbly simply because you were too tipsy to cork it before you hit the hay!

In my opinion, salmon is the king of fish and always fantastic. But when it’s poached it adds a buttery finish that makes the fish melt in your mouth. This recipe is a keeper for sure!
