How to Chill Wine Quickly

Simple Tip: When Chilling Wine, Add Salt and Water

The next time you need a bottle of bubbly to be cold quickly do what I do: add salt and water to the ice bucket. Simply layer ice with a couple tablespoons of salt and pour in water. The wine will chill in about 15 minutes — more rapidly than it would in the freezer. The addition of water creates a more chilly surface area and the salt speeds the drop in the water's temperature. The result? One cold bottle of wine. Have you ever chilled wine this way?
