Top 5 Champagne Disasters | How NOT to open a bottle of Sparkling Wine?
You Won’t Believe this Happened!
Watch the video of these 5 incredible Champagne opening mess-ups:
So first of all, if you’re sabering Champagne wine, you do not want to hit the bottle like a maniac, you ought to be precise, and make sure the cork end of the bottle is nearly frozen, or at least very cold, otherwise this will happen. Oh Man!!
Then, just throwing the bottle against a rock or a building won’t do either as the Champagne may take revenge and bounce back at you!
Indeed, you really need to freeze the cork-end of your Champagne before sabering. I suspect the heat in the television studio warmed up the wine here. Oops!
Finally, you want to hold the bottle tight while pulling the cork out!
I mean, really tight. Ask a friend to help if needed otherwise….
Even when opening a normal small-sized bottle… Hold the bottle properly, please!!!
