A pragmatic wine video

November 4, 2009

Has this ever happened to you? You’ve packed up your picnic, driven for two hours, finally arrived at the park, and suddenly realize you’ve left the corkscrew for that incredible bottle of malbec at home. Two hours away. In the kitchen drawer. Underneath the garlic press.

Or even better, you’ve finally escaped for a special weekend getaway. The weather is balmy, the view of the sea is amazing, candles light the space, and you and your honey are ready to settle in to relax and and enjoy a glass of something enchanting to match the evening. Only trouble is, the cabin you’ve rented doesn’t have a corkscrew, and you didn’t think to pack one.

In the old days, when I just drank beer, it wasn’t that big of a deal, since probably 4 out of 5 people I know can pop off a bottle cap with a Bic lighter. A wine bottle (the non-screwcap kind, anyway) is a different story. But fret not a moment longer! I present to you…a solution to the “Gee I’d really like to drink this wine but I seem to be fresh out of corkscrews” problem! Enjoy!
Note: These are virtually the same method, just a slightly different setup and different levels of previous inebriation.
