How To Chill A Magnum Of Champagne
A guy who knows how to chill a magnum of Champagne is a guy ready to impress. Light your candles, turn on seductive mood music and beguile your lady. Make sure you have crystal stemware ready to receive your perfectly chilled Champagne when the moment is right.
To chill a magnum of Champagne, you will need the following items:
- Magnum of Champagne
- Five pound bag of ice
- Champagne bucket
- Buy the best champagne you can afford. If this is a super special time, research the best champagnes on the internet before shopping.
- Get a magnum of Champagne that has not been chilled already. If Champagne has been chilled for longer than a few weeks, its flavor is adversely affected. You can’t tell how long it has been in the cooler, so choose Champagne from the shelf and chill it yourself.
- Store your Champagne in at room temperature away from sources of heat. Start chilling your Champagne half an hour before you plan to serve it.
- Fill your Champagne bucket three-quarters full with half ice and half cold water. If you don't have a proper Champagne bucket, you can use a large, perfectly scrubbed pot with a towel wrapped around it.
- Submerge your bottle of bubbly in the cold slush. Wait a half an hour or up to 45 minutes before serving.
Your lovely Champagne should be 45 degrees cool. The Champagne is guaranteed to have the best flavor, since you chilled it yourself. Now your lover thinks you are quite something and you’re both getting a kick from the Champagne. Enjoy!
