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 JumboJoke.com : 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!
