How To: Saber a Champagne Bottle

I always find it fun to have a few parlor tricks up my sleeve when going to a party, and I think learning how to saber a champagne bottle puts you on that 'renegade meets bon vivant' level of fabulous.  This trick is pretty top tier, so if you don't have the guts to pull it off in front of a crowd I suggest either practicing at home until you can't stand the taste of bubbly or stick to helping your hostess refill drinks. 

Important things to remember:
- Not all champagne bottles will work.
- Keep the metal basket on the cork.
- Use the dull side of the chef knife.
- Do not perform at homes where people have kids (fleshy, pink toes + tiny glass shards = disaster).
- It's more of a punching than a slicing motion.
