Take care opening fizz

There are obvious dangers opening a bottle of sparkling wine (corks ejecting at 60 mph), and less obvious ones. This is the picture of the rim of a bottle I recently opened. As I twisted the cork to loosen it, I felt something sharp dig into the palm of my hand and my index finger. While there was a bit of blood, it could have been much worse than it was. From now on, I'll be checking the rim is intact.

Ahhh but i was always taught to twist the bottle NOT the cork. Twisting the bottle while holding the cork would have taken your hand away from the danger......possibly.
