There”s little worse than showing up with a bottle of wine and realizing that no one has a way to open it up. The savory goodness is tantalizingly close, yet so far. Well, fret no more. These 10 ingenious ways to solve that problem, MacGyver-style, will make you the talk of the town. At least until the next bottle, that is!
TOP TEN WAYS TO HACK YOUR WAY TO PARTY FAVORITE, WINE OPENING STYLE:
1. Use a screw and pliers to open a wine bottle, just make sure to twist UP.
2. Hammer & Nails. Three nails and you”re home free.
3. Knife: A smallest cut at the top, with a lot of wiggle, can do wonders.
4. Take a bike hook and screw it in.
5. Put the bottle in a shoe, and bang the shoe against the wall. That cork becomes an instant projectile.
6. It even works with a towel wrapped around instead.
7. Use a screwdriver… but from the other end to bash the cork INTO the bottle.
8. Or better yet, do the same thing with a toothbrush.
9. Still out of luck? Jam your key in diagonally.
10. Okay, this is just for fun… use a blowtorch.
