    Re: Cork in a bottle

    That is an interesting one. I knew the answer, but only because we were discussing that very problem last week. It was good to see the practical demonstration though <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    Re: Cork in a bottle

    I saw this done on one of the late-night television 'talk' shows from the US a couple of years back. It certainly amazed the in-house audience.

    Re: Cork in a bottle

    You know the old trick of pushing the cork into the bottle when there is no corkscrew. I would like to know how to get it out once it has been pushed in and there is wine still in the bottle

    Re: Cork in a bottle

    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> That is a way, but I hate the idea of the wine glooping around the cork as it is poured pulling all the cork chaff with it <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>I was thinking of using a straw and just drinking through that <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Cork in a bottle

    Would a strainer, or flour sifter work to keep the cork chaff out of the glass? <grin>
