Have you ever seen one of those gorgeous wine bottle chillers made as a crafty DIY project using either an old 2-liter bottle or tupperware?  You know the kind, gorgeous lemon slices, color coordinated to the event.  I have ALWAYS loved this idea…. however, the idea of cutting up a plastic bottle to make it “just perfect” seemed a bit daunting.  In steps Williams Sonoma to my rescue!

When planning my Cocktails & Croquet party, I decided I wanted to attempt making one of these to dress up my casual bar.  The new wine bottle chiller from Williams Sonoma is simple to use and creates a perfect mold each and every time.  And it comes with the silver coaster, so as your mold starts to drip on that hot summer day….it won’t make a mess or ruin your tablecloth!

I used lemon and lime slices, and raspberries to fill mine.  {Tip: the raspberries very quickly turned the ice pink, so next time I may opt for strawberry slices or blueberries!)  It’s a great conversation piece and is a very cost effective decoration: just add water!
