This TikTok Exhibits How To Open A Bottle Of Wine With A Shoe

There are certain life skills a person should have, like tying your shoe, knowing how to cook at least one meal from scratch, and opening a bottle of wine – even if you don’t have a corkscrew with you. Like almost everything else, TikTok has the answer to the latter. So, if you’ve ever run into the dilemma of opening a bottle of wine without a corkscrew, here is everything you need to know.

TikTok user @jamiegriffwine shares a number of tips and tricks on their page for choosing wine in-store, understanding wine costs, learning about different wine regions, and more. He’s shared a couple of videos about opening a bottle of wine when you don’t have a corkscrew on hand, but said his shoe method is one of the most helpful.

“I really like this trail because it is real [for when] You’re in the middle of nowhere, you don’t have any tools, nothing but the shoe on your foot and the bottle of wine, “he said at the beginning of the video. All you need are a few simple steps to uncork your bottle and you should first remove the foil from the cork of the wine … and take off your shoe.

From there, stick the bottle of wine in your shoe and find a solid wall, tree, or other strong surface to hit the shoe on. Hit the shoe (with the bottle of wine inside!) Hard on the surface and the cork will slowly begin to come out of the bottle. Keep slapping the shoe until the cork falls out completely, and you’re done!

I would say the final step is to pour your wine into a glass to enjoy, but if you are in the middle of nowhere and have nothing but your shoes and some wine … you probably don’t have glasses on you . In that case, you might as well drink straight from the bottle!
