Pouring champagne into flutes

Edible glitter in champagne and prosecco is your secret ingredient to transforming celebratory drinks into the centre of attention. In this guide, you'll learn how to select the perfect edible glitter, integrate it smoothly into your drinks, and adhere to important safety tips. Prepare to bedazzle your celebrations with a sparkle that makes your gatherings unforgettable.

Choosing Edible Glitter

Selecting the right edible glitter for your champagne and prosecco transforms an ordinary beverage into a shimmering, eye-catching delight. Here’s a comprehensive look at the options available and the factors to consider:

  1. Overview of Edible Glitter Types Suitable for Champagne and Prosecco:
    • Rose Gold Shimmer Powder by Pop a Ball: Infuses your drink with a dazzling rose gold colour and heart-shaped gold leaf particles. Adds a raspberry flavour and creates a bubbling effect; it is gluten-free and vegan.

    • Fancy Edible Glitter: Offers a wide spectrum of over 15 colours, providing versatility for any occasion. Available in multiple colours, odourless, tasteless, and does not alter the texture of the drink.

  2. Attributes to Consider When Selecting Edible Glitter:
    • Aesthetic Attributes: Choose glitters that complement the occasion with their colour and shimmer effect—e.g. pink or blue for baby showers, gold for golden wedding anniversaries.

    • Dietary Considerations: Opt for products that cater to various dietary needs, such as vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and halal.

Can you add edible glitter to prosecco?

Yes! Edible glitter is definitely suited for prosecco due to its recommendation for use in clear-coloured, carbonated drinks. Here are some tips for incorporating it effectively. Ensure the glitter is added slowly or put in the bottom of the glass before filling and stirring gently to prevent clumping and maximise the visual effect. Expect a mesmerising swirl that enhances the aesthetic appeal of your prosecco without changing its taste.

If you’re looking for edible glitter to enhance a champagne or prosecco gift, why not pair your sparkling drinks with a glittery DIY champagne bottle?


Mixing Techniques

Achieving the perfect sparkle in your champagne or prosecco with edible glitter involves a few key steps and the right tools. Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure your drinks shimmer beautifully without any mishaps:

  1. Preparation: Start with a dry, clean glass to prevent any unwanted moisture from affecting the glitter.

  2. Measuring the Glitter: Use a dry tool to add the correct amount of glitter. Too little won't be noticeable, while too much can lead to clumping. Remember a little goes a long way.

  3. Adding the Glitter: Sprinkle the glitter into the glass before pouring the drink, or add it to the bottle and gently rotate to mix.

Techniques to Avoid Clumping and Ensure Even Distribution:

  • Add the glitter to dry, empty glasses before pouring over champagne.

  • Slowly sprinkle the glitter over the surface of the beverage rather than dumping it all at once.

  • Stir gently with a long spoon if mixing in a glass, or rotate the bottle slowly if you've added the glitter directly to it.

Does putting a teaspoon in prosecco keep it fizzy?

The belief that placing a teaspoon in the neck of an open prosecco bottle keeps it fizzy is a popular myth. Scientifically, this method does little to preserve carbonation, as the effectiveness is more placebo than real. For a truly effervescent experience, keeping your prosecco chilled and sealed correctly when not serving is crucial. Aside from this traditional belief, adding edible glitter to your prosecco can provide a visual enhancement, and it does not significantly affect the fizziness.


Safety and Tips

Safety should always come first when altering drinks. Follow these guidelines to ensure your sparkling beverages are safe and enjoyable for everyone:

  1. Food Safety Standards: Ensure the glitter is approved by the Food Standards Agency, guaranteeing it is safe for consumption in the UK.

  2. Allergy Information: Review the product labels for any allergens; many glitters are designed to be vegan, gluten-free, kosher, or halal to accommodate various dietary needs.

  3. Understanding the Ingredients: Typical ingredients include mica for shimmer, dextrose as a sweetener, rice protein for texture, and food colouring for vibrant hues. They are generally eco-friendly.

Best Practices for Storage and Handling of Edible Glitter:

  • Storage: Keep edible glitter in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain its quality and shelf life.

  • Handling: Use clean, dry utensils when measuring and applying glitter to prevent clumping and contamination.

  • Usage: Apply glitter sparingly to ensure it disperses evenly without overwhelming the drink's natural flavours and textures.

Incorporating edible glitter into your champagne or prosecco adds an enchanting touch and creates a visually stunning experience that leaves a lasting impression. Always opt for safe, high-quality products and apply the proper mixing techniques to guarantee the best outcomes. Doing so ensures that your celebrations are sparkling, safe, and satisfying for all your guests.
