Here are some ways to chill wine and cocktails without ice
Instead of pulling out ice buckets, you can drop a few wine pearls into the glass.
Wine Pearls are usually stainless steel orbs that are frozen before use.
When used in a wine glass with a round bottom, the frozen pearls will glimmer and pile up with an elegant look.
When you drop a wine pearl into a room-temperature pour of red wine, you can bring it down to cellar temperature (54–64º F/12–16º C) in a matter of minutes.
While these pearls are perfect for wine, their ability to chill without altering or diluting delicate flavors also makes them ideal for cooling liquor, delicate cocktails, and fresh fruit juices.
