- Frozen grapes
Put wine bottle in empty ice bucket
Put the wine bottle into an empty ice bucket.
Fill bucket with ice
Fill bucket with enough ice cubes to cover the bottle up to its neck.
Add cold water – about three-quarters of the way up the bottle.
Add two handfuls of salt. The salt makes the ice melt at a lower temperature. Your wine will chill in a third of the time that it would in only ice water.
Wipe off salt and pour
Wipe the salt off the bottle before you pour. In less than 10 minutes, your wine is chilled and ready for sipping. Put your feet up and enjoy!
