Okay, calm down, you're at a party, I know. You want to get a little caught up with your best friend's wife and the perfect opportunity has arrived. The corkscrew is missing and that bottle won't drink by itself. With an excuse you went to the bathroom and you came across us wine experts and voila, a list of the best methods tried and tested by the InstaWinery editors.
How do you open a bottle of wine with a shoe?
Well, very simply cover the back of the bottle with a soft cloth, put it down between your legs and spank it as if it were your 7-year-old son who just spilled a great glass of Chianti. Stop just before the cork comes out if you don't want to take a trip to the laundry!
To open the bottle against a wall will be enough cover the bottom with a soft cloth / shoe and slam it (not violently, please) repeatedly against the wall. As always, stop in time!
Do you have something hot on hand? Put it just under the cap on the neck of the bottle, the expanding air will ensure that you can enjoy your delicious Valpolicella even if a little warm.
THE CARPENTER METHOD
For some reason you don't have a corkscrew but you have a hammer, a screw ed a screwdriver? Well I don't know who you are but I'm here for you. Screw the screw with the screwdriver into the cap of the drink made with the fruit of the vine (yes, I'm a poet) and proceed to uncork the bottle with the hammer.
PUSH THE CAP INTO THE BOTTLE
DO NOT DO IT, the risk of cutting or burning yourself with other methods is fine but this is definitely the most dangerous, the cork could crumble in your precious wine.
That said good luck dear reader and try to enjoy your bottle!
