How to Open Champagne
Would you like to learn how to open a champagne bottle? The most important thing is to be careful and not do anything that might lead to spills or broken glass.
Opening champagne should be done properly! It’s all in the technique. Make sure to find a surface or area that is not filled with clutter or obstacles before attempting to open the champagne bottle.
Always hold champagne bottles away from you and anyone else present, as flawed champagne bottles have been known to explode unexpectedly.
If a champagne bottle is warm, wrap a kitchen towel around it first to keep it cool while you work.
Start off by removing the foil wrapper followed by the wire cage.
Loosen the wire cage that holds the cork in place.
Hold down the cork with your thumb. Make sure you’re applying gentle pressure and then twist the bottle with your other hand slowly at a 45-degree angle until the cork starts to move; pop!
As the cork rockets off, point it away from your face and any bystanders – believe me, champagne corks will fly far!
Serve that special bubbly with style and enjoy responsibly!
