Corkcicle: Stab Your Wine (Or Your Friends)
Is it a prop from the latest Terminator reboot or the famous ice pick Sharon Stone used in Basic Instinct. Neither. It's the Corkcicle, a faux ice pick that you chill in your freezer then pop into your wine bottle.
Another view of the Corkcicle.
Made from some sort of magic gel encased in BPA-free plastic, the Corkcicle claims to "maintain optimal drinking temperatures" for both your white and red wines. You can even use the Corkcicle, which sells for $22.95, to bring "those heavier room temperature reds down to more suitable drinking temperatures." Or you can use it to stab that one annoying party guest who gets drunk off a teaspoon of booze and bores everybody else with loud, longwinded stories about their sad, tedious life. No, don't stab yourself.
