Chill Champagne in Minutes

November 25, 2013

The holiday season is officially in full swing (Thanksgiving is Thursday--yay!), which means copious amounts of champagne will be imbibed between now and the new year. If you find yourself with a house full of guests (or you just find yourself really thirsty) and not a single bottle of champagne is chilled, you can chill one in about twenty minutes with this simple trick: fill your champagne bucket or kitchen sink a little less than halfway with water, add lots of ice, then drop in three or four tablespoons of regular table salt. Of course, you'll need to add more salt if you're using a bigger chilling vessel (like your bathtub). Let your champagne sit in the ice bath for awhile, and you'll be popping bottles in about twenty. 

Now drink and be merry!
