A trick to uncork bottles with a shoe
Today is Sunday and we have the cheeky and hooligan day. We are going to rest a bit from so much etiquette to see a trick to uncork a bottle, which can be very useful in those moments when we have a brand new bottle of wine in our hands, the food served, and we cannot find a corkscrew. Of course, it will be necessary to have a shoe and a wall, essential elements.
As we can see in the video, the function of the shoe is none other than to serve as a cushion against the blows necessary for the cork to come out of the neck of the bottle. You have to keep the lower part of it firmly attached to the heel, so that the heel hits the wall and transmits the force to the bottle without breaking the glass. After several accurate blows, the cork comes out little by little, in the video we can count six impacts, after which the cork can be extracted manually. Of course, we will not forget to cut the seal before starting to hit.
If we are in the open field and we do not have a wall at hand, let's not despair, the shoe can save us from disaster, because if we tap with the heel on the bottom of the bottle, the effect will be practically the same, although as the force applied It will be somewhat less, it will take a little longer to taste the wine.
