Icing Down Drinks
Do you ever need to quickly chill a bottle of wine or beer or—in my case—a 12-pack of Diet Coke, OF which you desperately need to drink one and you feel it’s dumb to buy a 12-pack AND a cold 20oz bottle at the check-out line for instant Diet Coke gratification? You may be tempted to stick it in the freezer. But don’t.
Fill an ice bucket or a vase with ice AND cold water and stick your drinks in there. I also add a healthy pinch of salt to make the temperature drop even lower. Within 10-15 minutes your drink will be nice and chilled. It works way better than the freezer, and you can even use it as a mini-cooler for a small party and it seems all festive.
Btdubs, Shiner Ruby Redbird has all the things I love: Grapefruit, ginger, beer and pretty design, but I don’t love it all together. Valiant effort, though!
