My grandmother returned from a recent trip to France with several boxy plastic bags in tow. After seeing one atop her home bar, nestling a bottle of wine and a plenty of ice, I gave her a quizzical look. "They were on every table all over the south of France," she explained, "bottles in these perky little cases!" Indeed, once I received my own (in hot pink, no less) I understood the appeal. They're the perfect portable cooler — light enough to tote on a picnic, with easy to grasp handles, and stylish enough to have out on your porch all summer long.
