Bottle of Wine Opener

How to open a bottle of wine when you don’t have a corkscrew at hand?

Most people rush of to a supermarket or other shop to buy a corkscrew. The good news is, you don’t actually need one!

Have a look at this YouTube clip on how to open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew : with a shoe!

Of course, most shoes will do for this lifehack. Barefoot? Ok, take some clothes instead and create a similar buffer between the bottle and the wall.

Oh, by the way, this Genius Shortcut also works if you are having a picknick in the woods. Just slam the bottle against a tree with a decent bark. Be careful not to break the bottle 🙂

And yes, I know, you wouldn’t do this with a Château PĂ©trus. And of course, this Genius Shortcut is in no way intended to inspire you to drink more than what is good for you. Or to put in the words of : The consumption of alcohol may cause you to think you can sing or may lead you to think people are laughing with you. 🙂

Cheers! A votre santé! Schol! Jambo! Salud! Prost! Kampai!
