7 Comments to Cork-screwed

  1. Of all the things I’ve used to remove a cork when I can’t find a corkscrew I have never thought of this. So obvious after you’ve seen it.

  3. or you could just slowly push the cork into the bottle with a blunt object. then carefully pour the first glass, or do the straight from the bottle swig. But you might have to carefully shake while swigging. I have vast experience with this method.

  5. Dave, we used a stilletto one night to do that, worked great. as far as the wood screw and a pair of pliers, also done that on a few occassions

  7. A screwdriver works well too. I’ve also used a metal nail file when in desperation. I remember driving all over town, on an overnight trip trying desperately to find a corkscrew (liquor stores aren’t allowed to carry them in TN), only to end up using a toothbrush to jam the cork down into the bottle. I think I still have pics of that adventure.

  11. I’ve done this. Multiple times. Way better than any other method I’ve tried (short of just buying a corkscrew like a quitter). Doesn’t end with bits of cork in your booze. WTG on catching a photo of it ;)

  13. I love how it’s a sub $10 bottle of wine too.
