Gift Guide, Day 18
Tuesday, December 18, 2012
The Corkcicle pretty much falls into the why-didn’t-anyone-ever-think-of-that-before category. This instant icicle cools wine from the inside, eliminating the need for an ice bucket. (Anyone who’s ever tried to find space for one of those bulky monsters in a tiny New York kitchen can appreciate the beauty of that.)
You simply store it in the freezer, and then replace the cork with the self-contained ice wand. It will keep white wine cold and cool red wine down to cellar temperature in a trice. They’re new to the market, which means that your friends probably don’t already own them, they’re available in many places, come in many colors and cost less than $25. And if you're ordering online, it will still arrive by Christmas. Pretty cool!
