    We drink a lot of sparkling wine in my house: champagne, cava, cremant, prosecco... We just grip and rip like you are pulling a weed. My life goal is an AbFab champagne fridge... and yes, I have Frankensteined a giant bendy straw... 😁

    As a bartender, and somewhat of an alcoholic. Opening champagne is super easy, and if you’re smart you don’t really have to worry about hurting people around you. Treat it like a gun and don’t point it at anything you don’t want broken/hurt. That being said, sabring a bottle of champagne is super easy and you don’t necessarily need to do it with a sabre, or even etch the bottle. I’ve done it with my bottle opener at work, and how to drink has a bunch of examples on it.
