Ratchet Corkscrew

While this ratcheted corkscrew still forces you to tug and yank and curse the cork out of the top of the bottle, at least you’ll have a couple of calories more energy to do so than if you’d used a traditional twist-top corkscrew. Each ratcheted corkscrew is $100, the equivalent of 100 bottles of the finest ripple. A cheaper solution: smashing the neck of each bottle with a handy household ratchet wrench, then filtering out the glass chips with the hem of your oily hobo shirt.

    You don’t need an oily hobo shirt if you do the smashing right.
