1. Preparation is everything
Pre-shake the Champagne bottle before trying to open it. Shake vigorously in a vertical motion.
2. Time to open
Once champagne is loaded and the celebration mood has risen to its highest level, it’s time to open. This is the most tricky part and can take time. You need to twist the metal wire in a counter-clockwise motion to unwind it from the cork. Once you get the wire off the cork, it’s time to get the cork itself off. This is another tricky part, but with proper technique it can be very elegant. To get the cork off, hold the bottle in one hand and the thumb of the other hand pressing on the cork. Press upwards, away from the bottle and the pressure should release the cork 15 meters into the air. I know the pros make it look easier that it actually is...
3. Spray it
Once the cork is off you need to create more pressure by blocking the bottle opening with your thumb so the champagne actually sprays out of the bottle. Continue shaking while spraying.
