Most people prefer to drink either red or white wine. However at times especially on special occasions, it is best to use sparkling wines. Most of the time, sparkling wines are used in cocktails, weddings or debuts, even on special occasions when you make wine toasts. You can save a lot of money if you create your own sparkling wine especially when you plan to throw a big party for whatever reason just to celebrate. You would only need a few ingredients to create your own concoction. Of course, at first you may find it difficult for you to make, but with some research on the internet or buying books, you will definitely be able to make your own in a breeze.
The bubbles or sparkles that you see in this type of wine are due to the carbon that is infused to the wine just like carbonated drinks such as cola that contains a certain fizz or bubbles. Common examples of a sparkling wine is the champagne. The name champagne is derived from a city in France where the first sparkling wine was made. There are also a number of varieties of sparkling wines aside from champagne that is found all over the world. They even are named differently depending on which country you purchase them but they have something in common, they have sparkles.
Here are some of the simple steps that you can follow when creating your own sparkling wine: All you need is a nice bottle to use as a container for your wine, some lemons, sugar and yeast and of course some white wine. Make sure you have a clean bottle without any taste or dirt because this will affect the taste of your sparkling wine. You need to add the lemon into your white wine to make the wine acidic and fuller in flavor and texture. Afterwards, you need to add the sugar and yeast. Make sure you use the right measurements for every ingredient you add to your wine.
Make sure not to use too much sugar in your wine. Not only will it affect the taste of the liquor, it will also be hazardous because if there is excessive carbonation in the drink, there is a tendency that the bottle will explode. When putting your finished product into your bottle or container, make sure you have a cork to seal the wine bottle. The cork will help keep the wine fresh as it pressurizes the wine in your bottle. Never fill the bottle to the rim; you need to leave a little space from the neck to the cork to ensure that there will be enough pressure in the bottle.
Store anything you make in a thermoelectric wine cooler to keep it fresh as long as possible.
