For starters, you should always have a corkscrew on hand, because opening your wine bottle with a shoe is just a recipe for disaster. Plus, wine is a more sophisticated drink and should be opened with the help of a sophisticated piece of equipment.
However, if you’re ever stuck in a situation where you don’t have a corkscrew, here’s how you can do it.
1. Remove the covering over the top of the beer bottle, you can usually twist it off, or even just cut it off.
2. Place the bottle in the shoe and then gently bang it against the wall. Make sure you’re hitting too hard, that could destroy the bottle and your shoe in the process.
3. You’ll see that as you bang the shoe and bottle, the cork starts to come out. You can twist the rest of it out with your hand.
It doesn’t always work, but if it does work for you, please do let us know!
