How To Chill Wine In Minutes
At some point in your life, you’ve probably found yourself with a room temperature bottle of white, rose or sparkling wine and thought, “How can I chill this on the quick?”
No one wants to wait forty-five minutes to an hour for their wine to cool to acceptable drinking temperature. So what do you do? There are several easy ways to chill down a bottle of wine in only a matter of minutes.
Everything you need is in your kitchen!
This first trick is to fill an ice bucket or large bowl with a 50/50 mix of ice and cold water. Add a dash of salt to the mix then place your bottle of wine in the bucket.
Make sure it’s submerged up to the neck and leave it for several minutes. When you come back, your bottle should be at a perfect temperature to pop it open and enjoy.
If you’re chilling a sparkling wine, let it sit a bit longer as most people prefer their bubbly when it’s very cold and the colder the wine, the less difficulty you’ll have when uncorking it.
Tip number two is to wrap the towel in a damp cloth or paper towel and place it in the freezer. Again, leave it for several minutes and your wine should be ready to go. Just be sure not to forget about it overnight!
You can also use various gadgets and wine accessories to get your wine cold fast. Some of the best options on the market include a chiller-pourer, which cools your wine as you pour it into your glass. Other useful accessories include wine or whiskey stones. Simply pop them in your glass as you would an ice cube or two, and let them work their magic.
With these handy tips at the ready, you’ll never have to worry about how to get your wine cold fast again.
