Ingredients

  • bottle of champagne
  • dishcloth

Instructions

  1. Remove the foil cap by finding the plastic tab, pulling it around the cap, and throwing it away.

  2. Next, undo the metal cage. You will want to look for the metal "key" you can untwist. Keeping one hand on on the neck of the bottle, and your thumb on the top of the cork, slowly begin to untwist the key.

  3. Pull it off, but keep your thumb on the cork to ensure it doesn't accidentally pop off. Sometimes there's a lot of pressure build up, which could cause the cork to pop out of its own if you're not careful.

  4. Once the metal cage is removed, grab a dishcloth and put it over the cork. Very slowly, begin to twist the cork out of the bottle.

  5. You'll feel some pressure as you do this, so try to keep control over this so that the cork doesn't come flying out. 

  6. Once you've removed the cork, you're ready to pour glasses. Cheers!
