Since my drinking game has been limited to special occasions lately, I find myself having a hard time justify springing for a bottle of wine (and champs) here and there with the knowledge that I'm probably only going to get less than a glass or two out of it in a week's time. I mean, once you pop a bottle of champagne you're basically stuck glugging down the goods in that moment or it goes to waste. You need those bubbles otherwise what's the point, right? Well, it looks like our prayers have been answered with zzysh®, the super nifty tool you need to make drinking and preserving your favorite wines a breeze. I for one am wondering where this has been all of my life. Like, how many bottles of prosecco went flat waiting to be finished in my fridge? Or with red wine, where you get about a week of shelf life after opening before quality and taste disappear? zzysh®, also has you covered.

So, instead of enjoying that bottle for just a glass or two and wasting the rest, you can get WEEKS of preservation with zzysh®. Pouring out half a bottle of champagne from the last night's party is now in the past and the remedy is super affordable and easy to use. The starter set is just under $70 and replacement cartridges are around $20 for 5 (you get a few uses out of each cartridge*). I will say it took us a minute to figure out how to use it (and when I say us, I had to ask David for some help), but after we figured out the trick it really turned out to be a simple task.

The unique technology replaces the air in the bottle with a protective atmosphere consisting of the inert gas argon for wine and a combination of argon and carbon dioxide for sparkling wine. This in combination with the stopper, works to protect the wine from oxidation, ensuring flavor, taste, fizz and color are all retained.

Now you can go ahead and pop a bottle for an impromptu mimosa with brunch. And speaking of mimosas, all this champagne and wine talk inspired a special take on that favorite go-to brunch drink.

In honor of my new-found appreciation for zzysh® I thought it deserved a special drink in its honor, a Blueberry Lemonade Mimosa. Perfect for switching up flavors this summer (it also doesn't hurt that it comes out in a pretty purple hue. Unicorn mimosa? Maybe). Recipe Below.
Blueberry Lemonade Mimosa (Serves 8)
1 bottle of Champagne or Prosecco
Blueberry Juice and Lemonade OR Blueberry Lemonade (I used Simply Lemonade)
1 1/4 Cup Frozen Blueberries
2 Small Lemons, Sliced

In a caraffe combine Blueberry Lemonade (or Juices) with blueberries and stir until combined. Add a few lemon slices and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Garnish the glasses with lemon slices and a couple of frozen blueberry. 

Fill the glass halfway with the Blueberry Lemonade mixture and top with the sparkling wine of your choosing.
Serving just one?
Mix 4 oz. juice mixture in a flute or glass and top off with Champagne or Prosecco.
