When opening champagne there is no need for anyone to lose an eye.
DON’T LOSE AN EYE!
I’ve put together a fast and dirty tutorial, complete with videos!
Someone get the lights!
The regular gal!
#1: Remove foil
#2: Find the “key” on the wire cage and twist open, keeping your thumb on the top of cork.
#3: No pointing bottle at anyone or any eyeballs!
#4: Once the cage is safely removed, place hand entirely over cork, while holding the neck of the bottle in the opposite hand.
#5: Point bottle away from you and start to slowly turn the bottle while holding the cork in place OR slowly turn the bottle while slowly turning cork in opposite direction.
#6: As the cork starts to come loose, keep slowly turning the bottle while slowly pulling the cork until you hear the soft POP!
#7: Celebrate your victory by pouring yourself a glass!
