680News wine reviews – December 30, 2011 – January 1, 2012 

Opening Champagne
At some point you'll probably be opening a bottle of champagne or sparkling wine this weekend. The pressure inside a bottle of champagne is 6 atmospheres or 90 pounds per square inch. The kind of pressure in a bus tire. So an unimpeded cork will leave the bottle at 65 kilometers an hour for the first ten feet. That's quite a weapon. To avoid accidents, cover the cork with a cloth, hold it still and gently twist the bottle away from the cork. It should come away with the sound of a lover's sigh and not an explosion of wine. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com.

Leftover Egg Nog
Have you got any egg nog in the fridge left over from Christmas? Well, here's a thought. Instead of throwing it out, use it to make French toast. You don't have to worry about having alcohol for breakfast because the heat of the frying will drive off the alcohol. And if you're not into fried food you can always use the egg nog in a recipe for bread pudding. It's really delicious and, again, the baking will cause the alcohol to evaporate. May I wish you all a very happy New Year. Cheers. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
