Keeping your bubbles bubbly

OK, so imagine you pop the cork on a bottle of bubbles, and you don't drink the whole thing (hard to imagine, i know, but bear with me....). I am eager to hear top hints of keeping it bubbly for the next night. My step sister inlaw recommended a teaspoon in the neck of the bottle, but whilst there are still bubbles there aren't as many as i'd like. Or should i throw all caution to the wind and drink the whole bottle next time, thereby making the query unnecessary? (pardon spelling, popped a bit of cointreau in, as needed a lift, and to compensate for lack of bubbles!)

Ahhh just drink the whole thing, Oskatd, they are not designed to keep opened! [}:)] Why risk bubble-less wastage?

shove an ordinary wine cork in the top or decant it into a soda stream bottle

If this is one person trying to cope with a full bottle, then some firms put out a dinky "one serve" bottle. (I think its around 150 - 200 mls) I find that it is plenty for me, with me dinner!

We have got this vacuum pump thingy that we were given and used once !! I think it was bought at ' Stevens '. It does work but like MM can't really see the need for it .:D[:o)][:0]

I have a special bubbly stopper that clamps onto the neck of the bottle and keeps the bubbles just fine. Bought it in Australia on a vineyard crawl somewhere in the general vicinity of Sydney. Can't for the life of me remember where.......... Oh well, apparently I enjoyed myself and had a real blast of a time!!!!!

Champagne stopper has been shown to a few people, but never used. Can't for the life of me remember why not....... funny that.

The teaspoon trick sounds like nonsense to me. No way could it work. Oh, look, it doesn't:

All you need is some sort of stopper to seal the bottle. Oh, and the vacuum pump won't work either, can anyone tell me why?

if it's a pump to CREATE a vacuum in a bottle. all the dissolved gas would siply fizz out to fill all that lovely empty air, leaving the champers flat.

If it's a pressure pump that pumps air IN the bottle, it would keep it pressurised so all the bubbles stay in the champers.

what you could do is decant remnants into a sodastream, shoot it full of CO2 and cap :D even MORE bubbles than before.

or do it to all the flat white wines, instant champers :D
