Opening a bottle of Champagne (or any sparkling wine) can be a dangerous endeavor. The pressure in a bottle of bubbly is three times that of a car tire, which means the cork can explode out like a bullet. Chances are that you won’t shoot your eye out (though that’s not unheard of), but you could certainly peg someone in a sensitive area or break your favorite vase.
