Tuesday's Tips & Trick: Chill Drinks Fast

Have you ever tried to chill a can of soda by putting it in the freezer, and then leave it in there too long?  What a mess it makes!  Now if I have company coming and the soda is room temperature, I make a salted ice bath. 

Fill up your container with ice.  Add cold water.  Add rock salt or table salt and mix.  Add your drinks.  After 10 minutes, your drinks will be noticeably colder.  Keep them in the salted water bath until completely chilled.

Check back on Friday, 
for my Slow Cooker Peach Dessert recipe!
