I have a friend who always has a bottle opener in his pocket. Be that friend for your friends. Sure, those large “easy to open” bottle openers make for excellent gifts, but the waiter’s corkscrew is best for parties. Once you get the hang of opening bottles with the corkscrew, you’ll be able to open bottles far quicker. Be sure to check for corked wine – if the cork has wine along the edge to the top, it’s best to pour the wine down the sink. It’s important to always have a sip before serving.
