LOTUS has some pretty cool stuff. like this simple thing... the corkcicle. basically a one-size fits all cork with a gel stem that you freeze an put inside your wine bottle to keep it chilled. think about the possibilities! i did. so i decided to give it a test. not just a test though... an extreme test.

first off, it was designed to be used with wine. so obviously i got a bottle of rum. the single barrel of course. froze them both. 

plug it in, plug it in. 

 right. ready to roll. just a few beauty shots before we leave. yes... leave. as in leave the cool house. i did say it was extreme.

oh yeah. almost forgot to mention that i had to take a little bit out to compensate. i only needed to take out a little less than a drink, but hey, why go half way right?

sure the corkcicle would work in a nice cool air conditioned house, but what about somewhere outside in the blazing sun? like aranguez savannah for example.

i found a nice spot...

and called in muh boy MICHAEL for some back up. 

more back up. 

 so the rum stayed cold up until this point, which was probably about 1 hour after removing it from the freezer. 

the drinks were just cool now rather than cold. i like my single barrel cold.

 thanks to the friendly neighborhood snowcone man, we kept the party goin beyond the test.

so much so that some cricket ended up in the mix. 

at the end of the day, judging from the extreme conditions, the corkcicle seems to be handy. it wouldn't replace your cooler if you're heading outdoors, but it would keep your wine chilled nicely. and it should be golden inside on a cool sunday. nice find.

    1. it struggled with the rum out in that blazing savannah. even the ice we got melted in no time flat. i'm sure it would work much better with wine.

  2. I Like, nice of you sharing this. I didn't know this existed.
