I learned this lovely tip from Martha Stewart:
#5 Here is a quick way to chill your drinks before an unplanned party or when on a camping trip. Place your bottles/cans in a bucket or container and add a layer of ice followed by a layer of salt; repeat the ice/salt layering until you almost reach the top. Fill the bucket with cold water to just below the ice line. Thanks to the salt the water in the bucket will be colder than normal, chilling you drinks in less than 10 minutes!

WoW! That’s clever.
I thought so too! I ALWAYS struggle to find space in my fridge for all my guests’ drinks – this way it’s right at hand and chilled in a flash!
…and it looks impressive too!
Definitely! I can just picture a lazy garden party with a big metal tub filled with ice and bottles of Bashews! Can’t wait for warmer weather! (sigh, I might regret wishing for warmer weather later…)
Trust Martha Stewart to come up with a useful tip such as this. I certainly am going to give it a bash the next time.
