Festive fizz – how do you ‘pop’ a cork?

When it comes to opening the bubbly, are you more of a ‘Cowell’ than a ‘Willoughby’?

The festive season is all about popping the cork on a bottle of bubbly with friends and family, whether it’s Prosecco or sparkling Shloer Celebration for all the non-drinkers out there. But when it comes to the all-important cork popping, what’s your style and what does it say about you? Are you a dominant ‘Cowell’ kind of guy or more of a ‘Willoughby – “I’ll pass it to Phil”’ type of popper?

Shloer, the non-alcoholic drinks brand, has teamed up with body language expert and behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings to identify the key ‘popping personality types’ that will be revealing themselves with every pop of a cork on bottles of sparkling Celebration – in homes and on the celebrity circuit – across the UK this Christmas.

The body language research from Shloer and Jo has identified six distinct behavioural and celebrity types when it comes to popping open a bottle of fizz, but which one of the below are you? Take the Shloer quiz to find out – and share your results with us @so_darling and use #MyPoppingStyle!




The Shloer Popping Profiles


The Dominant Popper

Often male, he’s the person shouting, “I’ll do it, I’ll do it”. He thinks he’s the ONLY one in the group who can open a bottle of fizz properly. He’s a high-achieving extrovert who enjoys the power of being in control and likes the attention it brings. He possesses supreme confidence in his own ability, and not just when it comes to opening the bubbly – definitely a case of ‘Watch and learn from the master’. Celebrities who are likely to be dominant poppers are Simon Cowell, Anne Robinson or Piers Morgan






The Premature Popper

Someone who nervously handles the bottle and lets the cork pop out at its own accord in any direction as soon as they’ve taken the wire off, just to get it open as quickly as possible. They’re naturally a little shy and would prefer others to be the focus or take the applause, rather than be the centre of attention. Celebrity-wise, they may be passionate about what they do but a little reluctant in the limelight. Adele, Professor Brian Cox and JK Rowling could be Premature Poppers








The Twist and Shout

A person who twists the cork out of the bottle with a flourish, but often gives a small scream of surprise at the noise. They’re the person topping everyone’s glasses up and cracking jokes, but are perhaps not quite as confident as they would like others to see them. They love to make people laugh and can be the life and soul of the party, but inside there is often a shyer person more out of their comfort zone than anyone realizes. Celebrities who are likely to be Twist and Shouters include Katie Price, Graham Norton or Lily Allen






The Popping Performer

This person loves the theatre of cracking open a bottle and makes sure there is an audience to appreciate how smoothly they do it. A born entertainer, they love the spotlight and all the world’s a stage. They love to make occasions feel special with a bottle of bubbly. Someone who likes the finer things in life and is sociable and fun to be with. Prince Harry, Dame Judy Dench and Ainsley Harriott spring to mind here






The Avoidant Popper

This sort of person will avoid opening the bottle if they can by encouraging someone else to take the lead. If they have to open it they will most likely be apprehensive, hold the bottle away from their body and will be very relieved when they finally hear the popping noise! The Avoidant Popper is often extraordinary talented but knows the strengths of their character and where their limitations lay, and will always prefer to stick to within the boundaries of their comfort zone. Holly Willoughby, Jamie Dornan and Ed Sheeran may be examples of this






The Spritzer

This person loves to be flamboyant and often lets their fizz overflow, but they are more thrill than skill. The Spritzer is characterised by someone who loves having a good time and isn’t worried about losing a few drops of fizz to make sure everyone is having a good time with them. They’re the ones at the party spontaneously breaking into song and dance, totally caught up in the excitement of the moment but in irresistible style. Kate Moss, David Walliams, Nick Grimshaw and Cara Delevingne may well be Spritzers!




Jo Hemmings, who is famous for analysing the behaviour of celebrities and is herself a self-confessed Avoidant Popper (same as me!), explains, “It’s fascinating delving into people’s behaviour during moments of celebration. Cracking open the cork on a bottle of fizz, such as Shloer Celebration, is the perfect way to set the party mood in swing – sharing a glass of bubbly is part of what makes the social ritual feel special whether you’re drinking alcohol or not. The beauty of this research by Shloer is that it not only gives us insight into the party mood, but it tells us more about ourselves and the way that we tick in social scenarios.”

Amanda Grabham, Shloer Marketing Director and self-confessed Popping Performer, commented: “It’s very revealing to have pin pointed the profiles, because I’m sure we can all identify the six character traits within our own circles of friends and family. While the spectacle of popping corks will be enjoyed through Christmas and New Year, we’re pleased at Shloer that we can play our part with offering the non-drinkers something a little bit more special to raise a toast with during festive occasions.”

The Celebration range comes in two delicious flavours made from sparkling grape juice; so whether you prefer a crisp refreshing White Bubbly or a fruity Pink Fizz, you can celebrate in style. Keep chilled with plenty of ice, then simply pop the cork and pour
