Three Minutes to A Chilled Bottle of Wine


So you forgot about those guests that you invited over for dinner and are now knocking at your door? Don’t panic it is possible to serve them a chilled glass of wine.

In fact did you know that it’s possible to chill a bottle of wine in just 3 minutes?

According to wine expert and master sommelier Brian McClintic, the trick is an ice bath filled with plenty of salt.

Ensure that the entire bottle is emerged in the ice, with a liberal amount of salt sprinkled in.

The trick you ask? Well the salt reduces the freezing point of water, meaning the liquid becomes ice cold without solidifying.
