It always happens when you least expect it: you bring a bottle of wine and someone doesn’t have a wine opener. Good grief. While wine manufacturers are increasingly moving away from corks, the humble screw cap still battles a stigma of years of being associated with inferior wines. There’s something about the romance of the “pop” sound you get when opening a bottle that wine drinkers aren’t ready to give up just yet, even if today’s screw caps are technically better for the wine’s preservation.
Here, the “Crazy Russian Hacker” shows us an easy trick to open a bottle of corked wine, even if you don’t have a wine key or corkscrew. I have a feeling that this would be especially helpful on vacation or sneaking a bottle onto the beach!
Please share this crazy life hack with your friends who may need it one day to impress some lovely ladies they may be out with.
