Screw caps were a great innovation; they make opening a bottle so much easier and there’s no chance of corkage. But there’s nothing quite like that magic ‘pop’ of good old fashioned cork.
Have you ever had a cork screw incident? It seems to be the easiest thing to leave behind/ loose when you’re going camping or out and about. But with a bit of creative thinking all is not lost…
I was once on a train from Nairobi to Mombassa with a group of friends and we had wine but (typically) no cork screw. I impressed my friends hugely by opening it with a bit of brute force…and a shoelace!
Here are a few effective (and entertaining) ways to get to the good stuff.
We’d love to hear your stories of how you’ve had to create a new way to open a bottle.
