My friends are always very thoughtful about bringing wine when they come over for dinner, but they don’t usually remember to chill that sparkling white that they arrived with and are expecting to drink with our meal in ten minutes. Luckily, I keep one of these in my freezer, so that the bottle is chilled by the time dinner’s on the table. (It also comes in handy all summer long for packing cold beverages on picnics.)
