Icing Down Drinks

June 15, 2012

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!

PS. This is the real perfect Summer Beer.

    Still haven’t tried that real perfect summer beer, but appreciate the reminder! Too bad the other doesn’t taste as good as it looks. We tend to buy beverages according to how much we like the labels. Always a bummer when the drink doesn’t live up to its font.

    I beg to differ – this is a truly tasty treat and we are so happy to have it back on the shelf for summer – but I will tell you this, i spoke to the Shiner rep at our local store because it tastes better to me than the first run (in 2011) and indeed they have changed the formula so perhaps give it another try. It was’just ok’ in 2011 but it’s quite tasty now!
