    Opening a corked bottle of wine without a corkscrew?

    I'm so tough, I don't need a torch to pop the cork from a wine bottle.

    I just bite the top of the bottle off and drink it.

    When the cork is flush with the bottle lip you bite through the glass?:eek:

    I don’t go within 10 feet of wine. Wait. Unless a lady needs help with it. That’s their goofy medicine. :whistle:

    I used to have a girlfriend that could open wine bottles without a corkscrew. She was oscularly exceptional.

    Screw the top off or open the "box" and there's a valve twist to open twist to close :ROFLMAO:

    A cork bottle all you have to do is push the cork into the bottle as you tip the bottle the cork will rise allowing the fluid to come out. Another way is to hold the bottle and with the opposite hand pop the bottom of the bottle with the flat of the palm --- don't do this with Champagne EVER ! the cheaper Champagne is very effervescent the better the quality the less volatile if you ease out the cork by hand a slight pop but it will not overflow unless hot or shaken. Champagne proper chill is 54 to 57 degrees reason it goes flat fast if hot if too cold it fails to tickle the nose from a freshly poured bottle the glasses should be chilled before serving.

    I yearn still for the sweet ambiance and delicate bouquet of Ripple Red.

    And White.

    And Pink.

    Excuse me. As fitting tribute, I'm going to go heave my guts out now and then have a few extra cavities drilled in my teeth.

    Ive got a better solution, give the crappy wine away to some pansy ass that likes it and get some of this instead, plus the corks easy to pull out as its attached to a larger section/lid

    scotch whiskey :( that's good whiskey that tastes been burnt.. my taste buds can handle Mezcal Tequila and dark rum and now and again blended whiskey like Crown If anyone wants a whiskey that tastes like crown and a lot cheaper try Kessler there is another I cannot recall the name but a Crown drinker can't tell the difference.
