This is a handy tip for any aspiring bartender. Submerging the target beverage in a salted bath of cool water will hasten the cooling process and your drinking pleasure. Sprint (a site sponsor) has put together a fun site, waitless.org full of videos to help you save time.
To chill a soft drink, wine or spirit fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. Add 1–2 cups of ice and target beverage stir for two minutes and enjoy an icy cool beverage.
