Those helpful folks over at The Brooklyn Kitchen seem to have read our minds:
What on Earth are we going to do with all of this Champagne, and all of these swords???
All joking aside, the culinary hub hosts a fantastic video series on their blog, with useful tips for casual cooks, as well as more ambitious feats for the Kitchen Ninja in all of us. No Champers or katanas at your disposal? Not to worry. Harry Rosenblum also demonstrates the technique with a sharp chef's knife, and on a bottle of Brooklyn Brewery Local 1.
Video below. Watch and get inspired to turn that after-work brew into a true celebration.
