Uncorking

wine cork

Do you notice anything unusual about the photo above? See how the cork is perfectly intact with no hole drilled in the middle of it? I thought like vodka, I could put any alcoholic beverage in the freezer and it would not freeze. Not true! Evidently, vodka has a colder freezing temperature than wine so it won’t freeze in a regular home freezer. But I learned wine can because when I forgot the bottle in the freezer, the cork popped out. Thank goodness it didn’t crack the bottle in the freezer. That would’ve been a messy clean-up.
