Shocker: I love wine. Let’s be honest: I mean, enjoying a beautiful, pricy glass of a Bordeaux 2007 vintage while I’m staring off into the sunset is my favorite hobby ever…

Uhhh…reality check! How often does that scenario happen? BA!

*sigh*

Life is cray, so when it comes to wine I’m not too much of a snob. For instance, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio gets the job done; it’s light, crisp, & delish.

Next time you’re sippin’, try this: add a bunch of ice/reusable ice cubes to your white wine.

Why? Because it takes longer to drink, you’ll consume less [ meaning less calories/sugar/carbs ], & adding ice promotes hydration [ ice= water= no hangover= winning ].

Cha-ching.

Unless you’re a profesh wine sommelier, this tip is the.best.evs. Esp for the holidays.

Cheers!

Love.L

    I knew a couple who would always make ice cubes out of whatever they were drinking. When little kids came over and drank milk they’d make milk ice cubes for them. (Because normal ice cubes make it watery.) If they made iced coffee they’d make coffee ice cubes. Weird, but sometimes helpful! Doesn’t help you out with calories, though.

      Love this Amelia! : ) XO.

  • I always put ice cube in my white wine for those reasons! Keeps it perfect. :)

      Agreed ; )). I love it cold too!

  • Meg

    For the purists who wouldn’t dare water down their wine, freeze grapes and use them in place of ice (or if you want to be a bit more fancy for a holiday party or something). FTR, I’m not a purist and have been known to use ice on the regular. Who wants to wait for the bottle to chill?! Grapes are just a cute little extra.

    • laurynevarts

      LOVE this tip, Meg! You’re so cute!

  • I love this trick and have done it for years! I like the idea of adding the reusable cubes!

      : ))) Thanks for reading, Kelly!

  • Bwahaha, love the ice cube shapes, and also the idea above about making ice cubes out the wine. I wish it were that simple though :(. The freezing point would be about -6 °C by the alcohol alone. In addition, there are some sugars, salts, etc. which will lower the freezing point a little more. If only.. although reusable flower ice cube shapes still do the trick!

  • I drink anything with ice! People say it’s bad to drink cold water but I just can’t help it I love everything cold!

    • laurynevarts

      I love freezing cold water and the hottest showers ever. It’s same to say I’m an extremest sometimes…lol.

  • I’ve never done this. Good to know!

  • Such a fantastic idea Lauryn. You know I love red wine and have really had to cut it out because of all the sugar. I will try this for sure! xo

    • laurynevarts

      Come see me soon, Heather! XO.

  • I typically use ice if my white wine is till warm : )

  • How funny! I’ve been doing this for awhile! I just like the taste a little better when its a tad bit watered down. Plus you’re right, no hangover!

    I wanted to made a comment about what a waste it is for your wine to put ice in it, “typically American thing” or something lame like that (coming from a dutchie = european = so kinda french = wine gods) but then I couldn’t because I’m secretly in love with your blog and your fun writing and realised that I’m longing for a glass of Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. With reusable icecubes.

    • laurynevarts

      You’re so cute. HAHAAHA love it!

  • What cute ice cubes! This makes me dream of summer in cold, grey London. <3
