Fridge space is dwindling as we’re all staying at home and using those cubic inches for groceries, so enjoying a cold beer or chilled glass of wine can kind of turn into a logistical nightmare.
While keeping your eyes on the clock as your drinks are chilling in the fridge or playing the “can I sip faster than this ice will melt” game are viable options, we prefer something a little more foolproof. These tools are designed to keep you and your drinks cool, calm, and collected.
COOLER THAN COOL CHILLED WINE GLASSES
There’s nothing worse than drinking warm wine. Look out for yourself/your wine-loving friends by grabbing a set or two of these chilled glasses, which feature a proprietary gel blend to keep the wine cold, and a silicone band so your hands aren’t chilled along with your wine. Simply put in the freezer during your morning check-in call and have cold wine by the time you close that laptop. They are available in tangerine, smoke, and wood-inspired colorways.
COOLER THAN COOL PINT GLASS (SET OF 2)
Using the same proprietary gel as the wine tumblers, these Cooler Than Cool Pint Glasses keeps 16 oz. of your favorite brew perfectly chilled without masking the aromas. Plus the dual-purpose silicone band on the glass is comfortable to hold and prevents the heat from your hands warming up your craft beer.
GEOMETRIC DRINK ROCKS (SET OF 4)
At first glance, these are a really cool set of drinks rocks, but these Geometric Drink Rocks are actually extremely functional. They’re made from soapstone and marble which are materials that are naturally cooling, so once they’re frozen, they really go the extra mile to keep your drink cold. They are a must have for whiskey lovers who want to enjoy a chilled dram but are looking to avoid their drink being watered down by ice.
HANDMADE LEATHER KOOZIE
Nobody likes taking a sip from their can of beer or wine to find that their hands have completely warmed up the drink to an unpleasant level. Koozies are an easy way to prevent this, but we’ve found that the plastic ones we collected in college simply don’t do the trick. This handmade leather koozie is durable and keeps your beer cold throughout looking out your window, reminiscing on tailgates of yore.
STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLE CHILLER
There are times when we like experiencing a wine as it comes to room temperature, and then there are other, more frequent times, when all we really want is a glass of cold Chardonnay. This sleek bottle chiller keeps things cool and simple with its double wall construction. A must have for any white wine lover.
AFICIANADO’S WINE THERMOMETER
To really experience the nuances and aromas of your favorite wine, it should be properly chilled. We love this thermometer because unlike most thermometers, it doesn’t require a battery or use mercury. Meaning this little buddy will always be ready for action.
