Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner, and for many Americans it simply marks the official three-day weekend start of summer and a great time to shop for bargains. It didn't start that way.
Memorial Day is a US federal holiday that is celebrated on the final Monday of May. It was created as a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the US Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. And while many people do honor those who have fought and died, most throng to backyard BBQ's and beaches, which is where Metrokane comes in.
If it's a hot weekend (we can only hope!) and the party isn't at your house, tote your wine with the Rabbit Wine Trek. It comes with a Chiller Wrap that is ready to use after 30 minutes in the freezer and keeps red wine cool and drinkable too.
When you get to the party, serve your wine with the innovative Rabbit Wine-Chilling Carafe, which uses no plastic ice chamber or freezable chemicals (the stainless ice chamber is a highly efficient cold-transfer material, far superior to glass or plastic).
Prefer a summer cocktail? Shake it up with the Rabbit Electric Cocktail Mixer ($20), kick back and enjoy.
PS Don't forget the sunscreen!
According to the Wine Institute, wine consumption is up to roughly 856 million gallons in 2012, from 836 million gallons in 2011. That's an increase of 20 million gallons.
How are you going to open, serve and preserve all that wine? If you wanted to, you could probably open a wine bottle with a five dollar waiter corkscrew and plug it up with the very cork you removed. But why should you when there are so many cool products available? >br>
Try the Original Rabbit Corkscrew ($50), which pulls a cork in 3 seconds flat, then automatically releases it (try doing that with a waiter's corkscrew!) . Its user-friendly ergonomic design opens any size wine bottle while looking downright cool.
Serve your wine with the innovative Rabbit Wine-Chilling Carafe, which uses no plastic ice chamber or freezable chemicals (the stainless ice chamber is a highly efficient cold-transfer material, far superior to glass or plastic).
And finally, preserve the wine with a Wine Preserver Vacuum Pump with 2 Stoppers ($14), which removes air from an opened bottle of wine. This preserves the wines taste until the bottle is re-opened.
Fact is, Americans are drinking--and appreciating--more wine than ever before. And with the full range of Metrokane wine and barware accessories they can now do it in style.
