Initial success of Sabrage!

OK, so as per my last post, I got a champagne sabre from Stefanie.
I couldn’t wait until the next champagne-drinking opportunity to try it out, so I decided to give it a go with a bottle of the sparkling apple cider left over from New Year’s. It was a success! Stefanie documented the process:

There is the actual sabering, and here are Meret and me with the results


Okay, the neck broke into about four pieces rather than just cleanly like it was supposed to, but I blame the lower carbonation in the cider.
Am I the Earl of Suave or what?
Coolness!

Stefanie says she was "impressed and relieved"
Meret says she was somewhere in between impressed and startled.
So that works for me.
