How to cool your wine
There are better ways to cool your drinks than pouring cold water in it or ice cubes!
Sometimes living in a hot country like Ghana creates some problems you don't necessarily think of when living in moderate countries like Austria or North Italy. If there are 35 degrees outside, well and inside 29 degrees, your wine, or whiskey or any other spirit will be warm within minutes. If you are a whisky drinker you are lucky…because some of the whisky experts say, that the ice cube in the whisky brings out all the flavors. But ice cubes in wine???? NO WAY! Don’t try to do that in Italy or France ;)
When ice is melting it will dilute the drink within seconds. So what to do? Simple: put some grapes into the freezer (white or red) and use them instead of ice cubes! It won’t water your drink as much as normal ice cubes would.
You could of course try to make ice cubes out of your wine, but then you need ice cubes of every bottle :) or you are a friend of experimenting, then you can mix different flavored ice cubes to your drink! Might be worth a try ;) The grape idea works also for cocktails! Try to freeze other fruits and vegetables for your cocktails! Create your story because:
Every glass has a story...
simply freeze some grapes and use them to cool your drink!
....or be more creative and cool gherkins, lemons etc. for different cocktails!
