How To Cocktail Party

I was thinking of How-To's today when I passed the wine rack in my kitchen. Then it struck me that time and time again I find myself at a gathering where someone doesn't know how to do something cocktail related, be it open a bottle of champagne or mix a martini. So for today's how-to I thought I'd give you 3 quick instructions!

How To Pop A Bottle Of Champagne:

1. Make sure your bottle is cold, and ALWAYS pointing away from you and others! 
2. Loosen the wire cage and slowly pull off. Then cover cork with a dish towel to make sure the cork doesn't shoot away
3. Slowly twist the bottle until you hear/feel the cork pop
4. Pour slowly into a champagne flute and enjoy!

How To Open A Bottle Of Wine:

1. Remove the Foil using the corkscrew knife
2. Screw the Wine Opener into the cork
3. Using the corkscrew's bottle rest, lift & pull the cork 1/2 way
4. Use your hand & pull the cork the rest of the way
