My fortune is made

Two evenings ago I discovered there was no white wine chilled in the fridge. Quelle catastrophe! I did the usual: two bottles of a nice Rueda into the freezer for 20 minutes or so. Then, distraction. Tonight, the inevitable: “Where did those two bottles of Las Brisas go? Ohhh.” Quick dive to recover the bottles, completely frozen, of course, with the corks pushed out and held in place only by the foil. Not-so-deft application of a series of tools: slender knife, ice pick, handle of spatula. Where are those kebab skewers? Shakings. Thumpings. Impatient waiting. Reapplication of tools and slightly improved technique. Et voilà!

Wine slushies, they’re the next big thing, I’m telling you.
