Chill wine, It’s an all too familiar scenario: you spontaneously buy a bottle of wine and are eager to indulge in it the moment you arrive home. The only problem is the two to three hours it can take to chill in the fridge, which instantly spoils your wine drinking fantasy. Most of us desire instant gratification, so when that gratification is put on hold — especially for something as important as wine — it can become even more frustrating.
The answer to all your wine woes? Frozen fruit. Look no further than your freezer for some frozen berries. Just a few pieces of frozen fruit will instantly cool your drink without diluting it like ice would. As an added bonus, you are left with a boozed-infused snack when your glass is empty.
