Step 1: Removing the Cap

First, place your corkscrew tip just under the lip of the bottle.
Apply pressure and turn the bottle until you are completely round.

Not all wine bottles have caps, so if your doesn't, just skip this step.

Step 2: Inserting the Corkscrew

Place the tip of the corkscrew in the center of the cork.
Twist the screw, but make sure you don't poke through the bottom, because nobody likes cork in the wine.

Step 3: Removing the Cork

Once you've inserted the corkscrew, place the bottle on the floor and clamp it between your feet.
Hold the bottle down with one hand and pull the cork with the other.
Make sure you don't gash yourself when pulling, I speak of experience.

Your now ready to get tipsy!
