P has some friends over, they’re out at the pool, all of them drinking.

One of them brought over a bottle of white zin, and I broke our last corkscrew last week opening a beer, haven’t replaced it yet. She brings it in to me, asks if I can figure it out. I said “give me one minute, I’ll bring it out.”

Brought it out to her, told her have a nice time, walked back in the house.

She’s texting me wanting to know how the fuck I got it open. :lol:

Used a screw....ran it halfway into the cork, used a pair of pliers braced against my finger to pull it out by the screw.

See if she figures it out lol

1" to 1.5" coarse thread #12 wood screw should work every time. Go with countersunk or bugle head (easier to grip with pliers). Or use locking pliers and it doesn't matter what shape the head is. I have done this before when there was no cork screw to be found. I've also tried shooting CO2 inside.

I've also had success with the shoe trick.
Google "how to open wine with a shoe".

Won't work on all bottles for whatever reason but it does work.
