Broke My Corkscrew, what can I use?!

Question: Broke My Corkscrew, what can I use!?
I broke my corkscrew opening the first bottle of wine!. I'm too tipsy to drive to the store and by another, but the nite is young, my girl is here, and we want to open the 2nd bottle!. What can I use!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

For me it would be easy!. I have a swiss army knife and a leatherman with a corkscrew!. That would be my 1st choice!.

2nd choice would be to visit a neighbor and borrow one (for me that is about 30 feet away)

You can also screw a sheetrock screw into the cork and pull it out with a pliers!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

pushing the cork in would be the easiest!. but if you have a decent size tree and a regular size bottle of wine, here's the macguyver solution!.

remove the foil from the wine and tap (medium to firm tap, but not hard enough to break) the bottom of the bottle on the bark of a good size tree trunk!. It takes about 15 minutes but it's an adventure to watch the cork pop out!. Best to do with friends around so your neighbors don't think you've gone totally crazy!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

If the word "tipsy" describes you better than "drunk" you're fine to go to the store!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Just PUSH the cork into the bottle with a butter knife!. Voila!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
