The goal is to remove the full lip of the bottle, including the cork.

Sabering champagne can take a little practice. Before you perform in front of an audience, it is best to practice on your own a few times.

Opening a bottle of champagne is 100% safe but always remember that the contents are under extreme pressure. If you’ve never opened a bottle of champagne with a saber, it is wise to practice outside with no one nearby.

If it doesn’t open, try again with a bit more speed and pressure and double check that your bottle is chilled and you are aligned with the seam.
