Party Tip: Chilling Wine with Hefty Slider Bags

By laurasrecipes |

When I’m entertaining I spend a lot of time making sure every detail is covered. This includes a desire to make all food and drinks not only taste delicious but look pretty on the table. When you chill wine bottles in ice you run the risk of the wine label peeling off from the moisture. It can be unsightly and messy.

To avoid this, I place the bottles individual Hefty bags and then place the wine in the ice. I like using the smaller bags so my guests don’t see them in the wine cooler or ice chest. But if you are worried about the ice getting into the bag, you can use a larger size Hefty slider bag. Your wine will be ice-cold and your labels will remain where they belong… on the bottle!

A big thanks to Hefty for sponsoring this campaign. Click here to see more of the discussion.

    I peel the labels from bottles sometimes. It’s a nervous habit. I can see how for a party you might want to keep them pristine, though. :)
