Did you forget to put the wine or other beverage in the fridge early enough to chill it for your party? Not to worry! Here’s your solution: Wrap the bottles tightly in damp tea towels or paper towels, then pop the bottles into the freezer.
Since heat travels more quickly through dense materials (the waterlogged towel) than air, your drinks will be ice-cold and ready to pour in 20 minutes or fewer.
This is one of my all-time favorite tips. I hope others will find it useful too! Rich
