The moment you realize you’re missing a corkscrew but craving wine is so unfortunate, that it’s something people shouldn’t even wish upon their worst enemy. The transition from chill to oh shit! turns one’s relaxed state of mind into a freaking code red emergency. Before you know it, that bottle you’ve been thinking about becomes 1000% more important to open because everyone wants what they can’t have.
So by nature, you get creative. And the most inventive people deserve shoutouts (so more people can learn their discoveries and copy, obviously). Like the guy who opened a wine bottle with a bike pump or YouTube user DaveHax who has a lifehack every wino could learn from.
Great success! This excellent party trick succeeds with synthetic corks but not real corks. So next time you hop to the wine shop, remember to pick the right poison so you can try this lifehack out yourself.
Happy Wine Wednesday, Berries!
