This is the only REAL way to open a bottle of Champagne.
Ciki attempts this for the first time at Chalet, Equatorial Hotel, Kuala Lumpur!
Sabring a champagne bottle isn’t as easy as it looks! With the right position, posture and bottle temperature , i.e, the bottle must be chilled to the correct degree, then you might just get it right..
But the rules of sabring champagne bottles must not be taken lightly. Though the act looks simple, just a slip of the hand could bring about disastrous consequences. The bottle must be pointed away from spectators to avoid the exploding cork and tip, from flying into someone’s eye, and blinding them permanently! Present at the dinner were members from Malaysia’s Confrérie du Sabre d’Or and the Grand Master of the brotherhood from France, Jean-Claude Jalloux. Jalloux very kindly guided the diners who were up to the challenge of trying their hand at Champagne Sabrage. Do you like my technique? I thought I did pretty well, don’t you?
Tis all in the wrist..
Easy Peasy, says Ciki!
