How to Open a Bottle of Wine

How to Open a Bottle of Wine

Learning how to open a bottle of wine is an essential skill to learn for entertaining guests at your next party or gathering. If you are like me, your only wine opening experience probably involved a corkscrew with two lever handles that did nothing but snap corks in half, leading to a ruined bottle of wine and failed attempt to impress your peers.

The biggest secret to opening a bottle of wine, is to use a simple waiter's corkscrew. The aptly named waiter's corkscrew is what your waiter or sommelier uses to open your wine, and is a simple no-frills tool that gets the job done every time. A waiter's corkscrew comes with a serrated foil knife and integrated lever. Our favorite waiter's corkscrew is the Pulltap corkscrew, which sports an extremely attractive compact design, is highly functional and durable, and can be had for under $10.  If you're using something with two handles, a complicated lever system, or multiple parts, throw that garbage away or gift it to someone else and get yourself a waiter's corkscrew! Once you know how to pop open a bottle of wine, you will be ready to pair food with wine.

Equipment
Waiter's Corkscrew
Kitchen Towel

Directions
1. Cut the foil from the bottle of wine using the serrated knife on your waiter's corkscrew. Use the bottom of the lip of the bottle as a guide for your knife, keeping it flush as you rotate the bottle against the blade. After you've rotated the bottle 360° you can pull upwards with the knife just as you would if you were peeling a vegetable with a paring knife. Peel off the foil and wipe the bottle clean of any excess debris with a kitchen towel.

2. Hold the corkscrew so that the tip is pointed downwards, and center it on the cork. Gently push the corkscrew into the cork and begin to twist the corkscrew. Keep turning the corkscrew until you've reached the last notch, which should still be exposed.

3. Next, pull out the lever from the waiter's corkscrew and place it on the lip of the bottle. If you're using a Pulltap or other corkscrew that comes with a two-step lever, start by using the second notch. Hold the lever and the bottle in one hand and pull on the handle of the waiter's corkscrew to begin lifting the cork from the bottle. When the cork is halfway exposed, switch to the first notch of the lever, and then repeat by continuing to pull upwards on the handle. Once the cork is almost fully removed from the bottle, grab the cork with your hands and wiggle and pull it out with a little force.

4. It's important to use your hands as opposed to the waiter's corkscrew to finish removing the cork, so that the cork stays intact and undamaged. You should hear a satisfying *POP* as you remove the cork from the bottle. Now you're ready to enjoy your bottle of wine. Cheers!

I've snapped a few corks in half in my day too. The trick is to push the cork all the way into the wine bottle and then to chug the wine as fast as possible. 20% of the time, it works all the time. Smooth

How do you prevent little pieces of the cork from falling in?

You've got it in one. Couldn't have put it bteter.

Federal customs officials have Juicy Couture Shoes stopped more than 20,000 pairs of counterfeit luxury shoes from tip-toeing into the U.S. from China.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Spokesman Jaime Ruiz says four shipments of fake Christian Louboutin (loo-boo-tan) Juicy Couture Scarf shoes were seized Tuesday, and another shipment was seized July 27.

Ruiz says the shoes could have sold for a total of $18 million in the U.S.

The vaunted French designer's Juicy Couture Clothing shoes come in an array of colors and styles, often commanding thousands of dollars per pair from well-heeled customers.

Celebrities and royalty have been Juicy Couture Charm Bracelet known to wear Louboutins, which have red soles.

The knockoff shoes were likely Juicy Couture Flip Flop destined for swap meets or sale through websites.

Ruiz says the shoes were very good counterfeits and will likely be destroyed.
We've said this before but it's Juicy Couture Swimwear worth mentioning again: the golf shoe game has changed. Seriously, go down to your local golf store and peruse the shoe section. You'll likely find a bunch of standard models on the wall, but if you look closely you'll notice there's a growing trend within the industry, Juicy Couture Velour as golf manufacturers continue to release designs that look more like your standard running or trail shoe than something you'd slip on for your usual Sunday morning round.
What started out as a niche market has exploded over the last couple of years thanks to, among others, adidas, TRUE Linkswear Juicy Couture Daydreamer Tote and Nike. Recently, companies have gone away from the standard design, opting for breathable materials and a sole that's lower to the ground, thereby allowing you to feel like you're almost one with the turf.
In other words, they want you to feel like Juicy Couture Purse you're barefoot. It may sounds silly, but when you have a better sense of your weight transfer, it usually leads to a controlled swing and sense of stability.
Adidas has two new models that boast "freedom and control" and "natural stability" called the Puremotion and Crossflex. Here's Juicy Couture Jewelry an in-depth review of both shoes.
Initial thoughts
First, let's start with the Puremotion, a shoe that, based on the sole, looks more like a running shoe with the "five-finger" Juicy Couture Bikini concept that's allowed long distance runners to perfect the heel to toe strike. As we mentioned in the opener, the goal was to design a shoe that gave you the sensation of being barefoot on the course.
While the sole is spikeless, Juicy Couture Outlet there are more then enough grooves on the bottom to keep you grounded during your swing. The wide toe box also allows your toes the space to move around and grip down if you need to really rip a drive or a shot from the rough.
Another nice feature? The shoe Cheap Juicy Couture Tracksuits has a mesh upper that's perfect if you happen to live in an area of the country that's hotter than Juicy Couture Sandals Hades. However, if it rains or you prefer to dew sweep in the morning, the Puremotion has a two-year waterproof warranty that should give you the confidence to wear these in all conditions.
Next, the Crossflex, a another Juicy Couture Jacket shoe that was designed with the athlete in mind. At just 10.6 ounces, it fits in the ultra-light category and looks a bit more like a running shoe than the Puremotion. Unlike the Puremotion, this shoe "pods" and "zonal traction elements" that allow for free range of movement Juicy Couture Sweater , as well as gripping and support. The shoe is also waterproof and comes in three colors (white, grey and black).
On-course thoughts
I took the Puremotion out on a balmy summer afternoon and was blown away by how breathable they were -- especially when Juicy Couture Flat the temperature started to climb. When you live in the area of the country where the mercury usually Juicy Couture Swimsuit soars into the triple-digits, having a shoe that breathes is about as important as having a couple extra golf gloves during the round.
The wide toe box was a welcomed feature. With the additional space for the toes, my foot never felt cramped during the round. Juicy Couture Handbags Comfort is key when you buy a pair of golf shoes, and if you're like me and enjoy playing 36 holes on a regular basis, you better have a shoe that can perform.
Also, the sole tread on the Puremotion provided all the traction I could handle from every lie I threw at it throughout the day. Juicy Couture Daydreamer The "five-finger" tread looked a little silly at first, but it gave me the feeling of natural movement with maximum stability during my round.
Another plus? These shoes actually look good off the course with a pair of jeans. I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for Juicy Couture Charms in a pair of golf shoes, but these definitely work on and off the course.
I could say a lot of the same things about Crossflex, which was by far one of the lightest golf shoes I've ever tested. If Juicy Couture Wallet you're like me and you enjoy slinging your own bag -- even during the heat of the day -- this could be your shoe.
The "pods" and "zonal traction" Juicy Couture Diaper Bag provide ample stability on the course, but the feature that really sold me on these shoes was the fact that I could walk 18 holes and not feel tired as I walked off the last green.
The shoe's description on adidas' site says it's supposed to "help reduce fatigue and enhance energy round after round," Juicy Couture Crossbody Bag so I guess the shoe did its job.
Final verdict
Both shoes should be on your list if you're in the market for a sportier model. At just $120 and $100 respectively, both not Juicy Couture Laptop Case only perform on the course, they won't ding your pocketbook when you leave Juicy Couture Backpack your local golf shop. As most golfers already know, having that combination in a golf shoe is never a bad thing.
