I have about 3/4 of a bottle, dryish. Ideas?

  1. vinagrette, pan de-glaze, homemade mustard

    1. Scallops in champagne sauce.
      There is a pretty good recipie on this page, along with some other very good ideas for champagne sauces ... you'll love 'em.

      1. There's a cold desert recipe in one of Julia Child's books Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I've made it three times and it's delicious. It is a cream and flavoring and real gelatin confection.

        1. Champagne gelee with strawberries, perfect for Valentine's day

          1. Champagne risotto (Nigella has a recipe)
