Homemade Champagne Vinegar
Pour any remaining Champagne into a clean jar, cover it with a piece of cheesecloth and secure the cheesecloth with a rubber band. Let the jar sit out at room temperature for about 4 weeks, until it has turned into vinegar. Pour the vinegar into a bottle with a lid and use to make salad dressings or marinades.
