A speedy way to chill your booze

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.

You know the feeling: It’s a beautiful warm, summer’s day, you’ve been stuck in a stuffy office all afternoon and that cold beer or glass of perfectly chilled white wine is just waiting for you to get home, but horror of horrors, you’ve forgotten to put the bottle in the fridge so it’s going to be lukewarm at best.

Well, I’ve got a brilliant tip to make that first sip absolutely sublime. All you have to do is wrap the bottle in some wet kitchen roll, stick it in the freezer for 15 minutes, and Bob’s your uncle, your beverage will be ice cold.

Chill your beer

Disclaimer: I’ve got no idea if you can do this with wine that has a cork but it’s fine with screwtops and regular bottle tops.

Verdict: a no-fail way to speedily chill your tipple of choice
