Do you know the correct way to open a bottle of bubbly?
Experts say exploding corks can cause serious eye injuries such as ruptured globes, detached retinas, and bruising.
To avoid that party malfunction, chill your champagne to at least 45 degrees, this way, the cork is less likely to pop prematurely.
Put a towel around the neck of the bottle when breaking the seal, and be sure to twist the cork, slowly, until it breaks free.
And most importantly, protect your guests by pointing the bottle away from people.
