Serving Bubbly

Martha Stewart Living, January 2004

Show your Champagne savvy with professional techniques. Carefully remove the wire cage from the top of the bottle by holding your thumb on the cork as you untwist the wire. Tilt the bottle forty-five degrees, make a fist around the cork, and turn the bottom as you apply pressure to the cork. Pour slowly, cradling the neck with one hand and holding the dimpled base with the thumb of your other hand for maximum control.
