Frozen Grapes (Keeping your Wine Chilled)

Wine is one of those things that won't please everyone's taste buds. If you like it, you probably have your favorites, and maybe some not-so-favorites. I enjoy a good glass of wine, but I like mine more sweet rather than dry, and I usually prefer it chilled.

 A couple nights ago, my mother-in-law was about to open a bottle before heading outside. In the Tennessee heat, you can imagine how quickly a cold glass of wine would turn warm. She had some freshly cleaned grapes, so we decided to test out using them as ice cubes.

Put the cleaned grapes in a Ziploc bag(you can use any color of grapes).
 Seal and throw them in the freezer for at least an hour.

Once the grapes are frozen, grab a few (or even a small handful) and toss them in your glass.
{Maybe pop a few in your mouth, too. I won't tell.}

Then, go ahead, pour your wine, and relax. :)

Using the grapes as your ice cubes will keep your wine chilled without diluting it.
Plus, they will soak up a little of the wine and you can enjoy them as a snack, as well!
