For 364 days of the year, great wine is not something to be messed around with. On April 1st, however, I think playing a little trick involving wine is very much on the cards. After all, the horror that hits the victim’s face will provide a classic moment. And besides, the results are only temporary.
So, what are the best ways to prank a fellow wine lover this April 1st? Let’s take a closer look.
Trade A Special Bottle For A Cheap One
It doesn’t get any simpler than this. Remove the Radikon from a loved one’s wine rack, and replace it with a bottle of something else. It could be wine, another alcoholic drink, or some lemonade.
Switch The Labels On Two Bottles
Another option is to switch the labels on two bottles of wine. This is best done on bottles with an opaque glass as pouring a glass of white wine from what’s supposed to be rose will blow their mind for a split second – before they remember what day it is.
Pour Another Drink Into The Bottle
Or, you can simply unleash your inner teenager and pour the wine into another bottle only to replace it with something else. Blackcurrant squash makes a great substitute for Viniterra Serie Malbec 2017 until the victim takes a sip…
Hide Their Favourite Bottle
The idea of stealing someone’s wine might seem a little basic, but why not spice it up by leaving a card that gives them a string of clues. For optimum pranking, make sure the last clue leads back to the wine rack – where the victim will find that you merely hid the bottle nearby.
Start A Game Of Roulette
Perhaps the most sinister trick is to pour a bottle of white wine into another bottle and place it alongside a handful of identical bottles that contain other liquids. Or, you could pour chilli extract into all but one bottle and turn it into a drinking game of sorts.
Whatever you do, make it fun. And if you are going to ruin someone’s wine, at least have the decency to replace it.
