"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    I don't drink champagne,I rarely drink fizzy drinks because I don't like them.I prefer natural juice.If I order a coca cola or pepsi,I tell to the waiter to don(t open my bottle,I'll do it myself.

    Pour it slowly, keep the receptacle cold before the fluid is poured, more ice.

    If I have to put the lid back on a large bottle of fizzy water, I use a small piece of cling film on top of the bottle, before I screw the top back on.

    I don't drink champagne, or other kinds of sparkling wine, and as for beer, I'm with Zom - not an issue.

    @Zom probably drunk quicker than how the bubbles escape
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @mouna opening yourself or in view of the waiter opening the bottle
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @chyijung chilled glasses and using ice are great methods
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @Lynne cling film is a new way for me

    @Saira yes it is a great idea
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @Hermine do you like the bubbles or prefer when it goes flat
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @mheredge how do you like your glass of champagne
  • mounamouna Posts: 1,880 ✭✭✭
    Once we like fizzy drinks,we have to keep the bubbles.
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @mouna we had a soda-stream when I was little

    @jackelliot, I prefer bubbles it is so refreshing then. A former secretary once used to stir the bubbles off with a teaspoon.
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @Hermine bubbles are lovely indeed
  • NickTomNickTom Posts: 39 ✭✭
    Hi @jackelliot! I have never thought how to keep the bubbles before :D I rarely drink fizzy drinks & sometimes the bubbles annoy me when drinking.
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @NickTom It is wonderfully how we can all have different tastes
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @psymonology what do you do to keep the bubbles alive in your fizzy drinks
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @Xanthippe how do you enjoy the fizzy drinks
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @Pate with bubbles they sometimes escape
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,825 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Not much. :) I prefer plain water. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,688 mod
    Thanks for the cling film tip @Lynne. I sometimes buy cider and pour it into small bottles so I don't have to drink it all at once. I find the screw tops don't hold in the fizz though, so my cider is usually flat. Cling film might help solve this.
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @Xanthippe plain water is what I travel with
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @mheredge just like Windy Miller in camberwick green

    @jackelliot i don't like carbonated water at all, in fact in some circumstances, i would stir around the cup to make the gas comes out
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 754 OTT
    @psymonology or just leave it for a wee while
  • psymonologypsymonology Posts: 15 ✭✭
    @jackelliot or just give it a little bit of Mr. Heater and it will automatically obey the nature order and go away
