Quick Chilling Tricks

Quick Chilling Tricks

The holiday party season is officially here, and we are looking forward to the merriment, the food, and of course, the wine! But in between decorating, food prepping, and primping for the festivities, it can slip our mind to do something as simple as chill the wine. Forget to put your Jam Jar wines in the fridge before the guests arrive? Don’t worry – we’ve got you set with some quick at home tricks for quickly chilling wine in a matter of minutes!   Salt Bath Method One of the easiest ways to chill your wine is the old-school “salt bath” method. Fill a large pot with cold water, a ton of ice and about ¼ cup of salt. Add the bottle to the pot and stir occasionally to speed up the cooling process. Time: 10 minutes JJ Review: 5 out of 5 Comments: If you need to chill several bottles at the same time, this method works really well with a cooler.   Paper Towel Technique Another common household trick is the “paper towel” technique. Soak 1-2 sheets of a paper towel in cold water and wring it out so that it is still holding quite a bit of liquid, but not dripping too much. Wrap the bottle with the wet paper towel and place it in the freezer. Time: 15 minutes JJ Review: 3 out of 5 Comments: If your bottle isn’t cold enough after 15 minutes, re-soak the paper towel. Wine Ice Cubes Our last method takes more advance preparation, but it’s a real lifesaver in a pinch! If you’re anything like us, you drink Jam Jar frequently enough where it makes sense to have Jam Jar ice cubes on hand. It’s the perfect way to use any leftover wine if you haven’t finish a bottle (but why wouldn’t you??) and it can also come in handy if you ever need to make a red wine reduction for a recipe. But most importantly this will chill your wine quickly without watering it down! Time: 5 minutes JJ Review: 4 out of 5 Comments: Stores now sell silicon ice molds in fun and festive shapes like Christmas trees – perfect for a holiday party!   We hope this helps you to enjoy your Jam Jar wine at the perfect temperature no matter how spontaneous the pouring!...

DIY Jam Jar Tiki Torch

DIY Jam Jar Tiki Torch

The weather is warming up and all we want to do is head outdoors and enjoy a refreshing glass of Moscato after a long day’s work.  Picture sitting peacefully on a porch, by the pool, or in the backyard without a care in the world, life is good! But…then come those darn mosquitoes. Ugh! No need to run, we’ve come up with a fun & festive way to keep those bugs miles away. What you’ll need: – Empty bottle of Jam Jar – Bitefighter Citronella fuel – Torch wick – Thread seal tape (teflon) – Coupling 3/4 x 1/2 What to do: 1. After enjoying your bottle of Jam Jar, soak it in warm, soapy water to clean out any remaining wine remnants and to help loosen paper label. Rinse bottle, remove label (if desired), and dry. 2. Fill bottle a little more than 1/2 way with citronella fuel. This will ensure the fuel will saturate the torch once inserted and keep the bottle sturdy in windy conditions. 3. Place coupling around lip (very tip) of Jam Jar bottle. Wrap base of coupling with Teflon tape a few times until the coupling is securely in place without movement. 4. Insert the torch wick into the bottle leaving about an inch outside of the opening. Let sit for five minutes before lighting to ensure the torch becomes saturated. 5. Head outdoors and seek a spot where you can safety place the decorative bug repellent. Light up the wick and admire your new Jam Jar Tiki Torch! Caution: Read warning labels on fuel and wick items. Never keep torch lit while unattended and do not use indoors....
