How to Open a Bottle of Wine (When You Can’t Find the Corkscrew)

Happy National Wine Day! We hardly need an excuse to enjoy a glass of wine. But when National Wine Day (May 25) falls on the Friday before a long weekend, this double holiday deserves a proper celebration. If you need us, we’ll be mixing up a pitcher of sangria and firing up the grill. We hope you’ll be doing the same.

… Unless someone forgets or loses the corkscrew, and you’re left hacking at the cork with a knife while the food gets cold. In case of emergency, here’s an easy (Tasker approved) way to open a bottle of wine with common toolbox items.

  • Screwdriver
  • Screw
  • Hammer

Directions

  1. Twist the screw into the cork, like you would do with a wine opener.
  2. Using the back of the hammer, yank the screw and cork out.
  3. Receive thanks and compliments for saving the party. Cheers!
