​You Can Now Buy Cooling Cups To Keep Your Wine Chilled All Day Long

​You Can Now Buy Cooling Cups To Keep Your Wine Chilled All Day Long

As lockdown continues and we're desperately missing our pub garden meet-ups, we've been spending more and more time drinking wine in our gardens instead.

For those who want to go the extra mile with their impromptu back garden pubs, you can now keep your wine chilled for as long as you need.

The Host Wine Freeze Cooling Cups will keep your tipple of choice cool all day long and it looks cute too!

Available on Amazon, the cups are priced at around £31 to £37 for a set of two and come in four different colours including blue, coral, grey and mint green.

Perfect for all wines, whether your fave is a glass of white, red or rosé, the cup works with an in-built cooling gel system that is set at the optimum temperature for your drink.

All you need to do is chill the cooling cups in the fridge for at least two hours if you'd like a cool glass of red wine, or freeze the cups for the same amount of time for the perfect chilled glass of white.

The trick to keeping your wine cool all day long lies in the cup's cooling gel, which is precisely engineered to come up with the right temperature for your particular drink, and will keep it cold for hours.

To achieve peak chill mode, your wine needs to be between 58 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit for a glass of red, or 43 and 53 degrees Fahrenheit for a glass of white.

The cups are BPA free too, so you can indulge in a guilt-free beverage while sunning yourself in the garden, while an insulated silicone band around the glass will keep your hands from getting too cold.

Each glass holds 8.5 ounces, which is equivalent to a standard glass of wine.

"The wine freeze is perfect for all wines," say makers Host. "Just pop it in the fridge to cool your reds to the perfect cellar temperature or store in the freezer to chill your whites."

And, as well as keeping your wine chilled, the cups can also be used to keep other drinks, such as milk or juices, cool too.

Plus, it also makes a great cocktail glass!

Reviews of this product have been mostly positive...

One Amazon user said the cups "keep drinks nice and cold - especially good if you don't like to dilute your drinks with ice."

Meanwhile another advised buying two sets of glasses.

"Bought these for a friend who loved them - a good summer gift."

A third gave the glasses five stars.

"Great idea for the white wine drinker, no more putting frozen grapes in our wine to keep it chilled," he said.

While a fourth reviewer favoured the shape of the cups.

"Fabulous invention, keeps your wine at the perfect temperature, and the shape is really nice to hold," they said.

We can't wait to use these all summer long!
