Picture the scene: the sun is out, you’re finally allowed to have a drink with your loved ones, and life is just generally pretty good for the first time since March 2020.

All you have to do is wrap the bottle in damp kitchen roll or a damp tea towel and stick it in the freezer. When you take it out in seven minutes, you’ll be left with an ice-cold beverage for you and your guests.

So, your wine is now nice and cool, but you want it to stay that way, right? And you know ice cubes will just water your wine down, and nobody wants that.

Next time you know you’ll be wanting an ice-cold glass of wine, stick a few grapes in the freezer a few hours before. Once they’re frozen, you can pop them in your glass of wine and they’ll keep it cool without diluting your precious, precious booze.

Is it too early for a glass of wine? Never.
