Default any recipes for using up leftover flat champagne?

After celebrating the New Year with a few neighbors, I found myself the
next morning with three open bottles of average Champagne leftover.
Although, they do not represent much of an investment, I still hate to just
throw the stuff down the drain. Outside of waiting a few weeks to make
champagne vinegar out of the lot, does anyone have a favorite recipe to use
up leftover, flat champagne?

Flat champagne is just wine to me. :-)

I chill it and drink it as is.

Drink it. We seal unfinished champagne bottles, after covering it with a
nitrogen blanket. The next day it tastes good!

Use in most any recipe that calls for white wine. I used some
yesterday for fettuccine with mussels.

Turn it into higher grade wine vinegar.

Champagne chicken of course! Brown your chicken, pour in some
champagne, reduce, pour in more reduce again. Finish off with heavy
cream. You can add sliced mushrooms somewhere in the process too, if
you wish. Season as you wish... tarragon or thyme, salt and pepper.

Put a half dozen cloves of garlic in it, let it sit for a week and use it as
a seasoning in soups, gravies, etc.

First of all, were they drinking out of the bottles? i.e., Guzzling,
suckin'-it-up?

Use it as the acidic liquid component in French Onion Soup.

Look for a recipe for poached eggs with champagne sauce.

Just put the open bottles in the fridge and use them as white cooking
wine during the next week or two. They should last longer than still
white wines because the residual CO2 will make a "blanket" on top of the
wine and greatly slow reduce the amount of oxygen that gets to it to go
stale. I know you said they are flat, but they are unlikely to be
*completely* flat yet.

Best regards,
Bob

I'll second that recommendation. Risotto with champagne is very special
indeed.

Default leftover champagne - Excellent suggests!

Thank you for the ideas on what to do with my leftover champagne. I
considered substituting it for white wine, but never thought to adjust for
the slight extra sweetness.

I usually lose patience to make risotto, but it sounds tempting. I also
found a recipe for "champagne scallops" I might have to try.

thanks again all. Cheers!

It also makes a good liquid for wheat bread.

This sounds lovely. I'd leave out the mushrooms, and add garlic and
onion or perhaps scallions.

The only mushrooms I can eat without feeling gross are dried and
rehydrated ones, but they still aren't something I'd seek out.

Use it to make great mustards! Use any combination of recipes and
replace some of the liquid with the unbubbly. It will be yummy.

Sounds like a plan! I leave in the mushroom and add all of the above.
