How to Saber Champagne

One of the best party tricks I have ever learned was how to saber a champagne bottle.

It’s so ridiculously easy. In fact, I’m thrilled that most people don’t know how to do it since it makes me look much more talented than I am.

Obviously, sabering the glass top off a bottle of bubbly makes little sense. Clean-up is frustrating, and you typically lose a few swallows of champagne in the process. But gosh darn it, it sure makes for a cool trick.

(Below is a picture of one of my first champagne sabers. Clearly, the first rule of sabering is to wear a one-shouldered glittered prom dress.)


Here’s a YouTube link from Wine Folly which will help you become a saber expert.
