Give your wine a quick chill

valore-champagne-row_brightThe hustle and bustle around the holidays can make everyone a little hectic and sometimes forgetful.  We all know about the forgotten key ingredient or the extra crispy crust on your pie – was that the oven timer?

The next time you forget to chill your white wine, try this little trick used by the professionals for a quick chill.  Fill your wine bucket with equal parts ice and cold water.  Add a 1/4 cup of salt to the water-ice  mixture and place wine in the bucket to chill.  The salt lowers the freezing point of water without turning it into ice and therefore chills your wine more quickly.

Having more than just a few friends over and need to chill several bottles of wine quickly,  the kitchen sink makes a great wine chiller!
