(styleboston) - Thanks to this week's Trendsetter, you've got a new way to entertain. The Noble Art of Sabrage is the one and only way to celebrate champagne. Using the French acclaimed Nicholas Feuillate, our journey begins. First, make sure the bottle is cold. A warm bottle has more pressure so it won't have quite the same effect. Remove the foil to reveal the cork and wire basket. Carefully remove the wire basket (muselet) around the cork (bouchon). With your arm extended, hold the bottle firmly by placing the thumb inside the base of the bottle (le cul), make sure you're not aiming at eyes/faces/other body parts and lay the sabre flat along the seam of the bottle and slide it to the lip of the bottle with force! Voila. If you don't have a sabre handy, don't fret! Sabrage can actually be used with a regular knife, spatula or (believe it or not) a spoon! Celebrate everyday!
