Have a waiter’s corkscrew and learn how to use it
“Nothing looks more silly than having to use a huge contraption to pull out a cork,” says Wallace. Go with the original Rabbit corkscrew, or make life even easier with an automatic corkscrew remover. “Always have a bottle of Champagne (or other bubbles) and a white wine of your choice in the fridge,” says Ian Mendelsohn, DWS of Vine & Tap. Also, always have a bottle of red on your counter. While you are at it, keep orange juice in the fridge with the aforementioned Champagne (Cava, Prosecco, or other sparkling wine) makes a great mimosa on weekend mornings, says Mendelsohn.
