3 Steps to Pop
Every year careless celebrating leads to serious injuries when opening champagne corks. So make sure you know the right way to open a bottle of bubbly.

1) Make sure sparking wine is chilled to at least 45 degrees Fahrenheit before opening. The cork of a warm bottle is more likely to pop unexpectedly. Chilling champagne to 45 degrees F also improves its taste.

2) old down the cork with the palm of your hand while removing the wire hood. Point the bottle away from yourself and others at a 45-degree angle. Place a towel over the entire top and grasp the cork, slowly and firmly twisting it to break the seal.

3) Keep the bottle at a 45-degree angle, hold it firmly with one hand and use the other hand to slowly turn the cork with a slight upward pull. Continue until the cork is almost out of the neck. Counter the force of the cork using slight downward pressure just as the cork breaks free from the bottle.

By following these few simple safety tips, you can make sure your holidays are festive and injury free Happy Holidays! (Source: The American Academy of Ophthalmology, www.aao.org)
