Happy Halloween 2012! Halloween is my favorite holiday, always has and always will be. I love the scary movies, great treats, haunted houses and little trick or treaters. And I love the beginning of the holidays, when decorations are broken out of storage and reverie begins.
The chilly fall weather is mirrored perfectly by a glass of chilled Chardonnay, which is a wonderful libation to enjoy while stringing spider webs or ghost lights. But alas, how do you chill your wine quickly without diluting its nice lemony flavor?
Her secret? Frozen green grapes in your glass keep your wine chilled without melting and diluting the flavor. Wine stores sell "wine rocks" for storing in your freezer for the same purpose, but the grapes are not only cheaper, but you can eat them when you are finished.
Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries work well too - and add a nice touch to your glass of wine. We enjoyed a nice but simple glass of Kendall Jackson 2010 Chardonnay with our green grapes and Halloween decorations.
Or, you can invite a friendly ghost to come touch your glass - Moooohaaaaaaaaaahaaaaa!!!!!
Happy Halloween Everyone!
