Finding the perfect beverage is a goal worth striving for. After all, nothing gets better than perfect. Why settle for a lukewarm drink when a crisp, cool, refreshing one could be had instead? Unfortunately, like all good things in life, obtaining top-level drink enlightenment requires some amount of planning. Luckily, there is a quality shortcut.
The Vinotemp Epicureanist Quick Chill Ice Bucket ($89) chills bottles of booze, wine, and soda quickly and easily at a moment's notice. The efficient bottle chiller outpaces that other quick chilling option (but saves freezer interiors from burst bottles). By rotating the bottle in a bath of ice and water, the chiller cools bottles down in as little as 15 minutes -- plus it has a cool light show to go with it.
The acrylic chiller draws attention by cycling through a color-changing LED light show as the bottle rotates. Here, becoming mesmerized by the spinning bottle is okay; there is no need to drive to the store to find the perfect pre-chilled bottle. If things get a little too mesmerizing, there is an incorporated timer to help keep track of time. All that's left then is to sit back, watch the light show and let the perfect beverage come to you.
