Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

Yesterday I wrote all about cocktails made with sparkling wine. I highly recommend you always keep a bottle in your fridge, chilled and ready to go, because you never know…

However, if you are caught ill-prepared and need to fetch a bottle from the cellar, you can chill it in a very short time with this simple Friday Tip:

Put the bottle in an ice-water bath with a generous handful of salt. It will chill in about 10 minutes.

You can do this right in the bucket. You do have a champagne bucket, don’t you?

Just before serving, gently turn the bottle upside down to chill the wine in the neck.

You wouldn’t want the first glass to be tepid, after all the trouble you’d gone to for a chilled bottle.
