Saving Leftover Wine

How about a little trick for when you want to save some leftover wine from your last night's dinner party but without compromising on the taste? It's a risky business but totally doable. (The cork just doesn't cut it as the wine gets bad in a day or two).

So, a few days ago I tested Amanda's jar trick and it's really spot on. Here is how it goes: to keep the wine fresh in taste, top up your leftovers in a sealable container and make sure you fill it just a little too full - in a way that some wine should spill while you're covering the container. Close it tight, wipe it off and this way you've got an air-tight jar of wine that will last in the fridge for up to a week.

Lovelies, do you drink wine? What’s your favourite? How do you save your leftover wine? Have you tried this trick before? Any others you’d like to share?

P.S: Stay tuned for a snazzy Mother's Day giveaway!!!
