The other blog in my life

I know, I said I was going to post on ramen today… but instead, I worked on a particularly GREAT post for Cooking Issues with Dave & Nils.  It’s all about how to saber a champagne (or other sparkly bubble) bottle.  Once you learn how to saber, you will never be able to open a bottle of champagne/sparkling wine traditionally without sighing a little for the lost chance to snap the cork off that bottle.  Don’t believe me?  Just watch the video (our first on Cooking Issues) and tell me that it doesn’t make you want to run out and by the cheapest bottle of sham-pog-nay that you can find.  Happy sabering.

    I didn’t even know that was something I had to do?

    Pretty sure my efforts would be “embarrassing” but gosh, I love that pimp ring.

    fyi, you can also “saber” beers in bottles. the best is to use a metal spatula and go straight up at your upright beer. and your aim isn’t to break the bottle, but to off the cap. so this means you probably want to avoid the seam and you want to avoid the lip of the bottle. 9 times out of 10, i break the neck, instead. which means 9 times in a night, i cut my lips open on my beer.

    but it’s a cool party trick, indeed.

      i love this. this is right up the disaster alley! i always open my beer bottles (or anything with a crown cap) using the back of a knife and my knuckle as leverage. My friend stabbed herself in the arm that way, though…
