Don't Toss that Wine Bottle! A Versatile Water Carafe

Restaurants have been reusing wine bottles as water carafes for some time. While I was on my own escape to Colorado a couple of weeks ago, I discovered a trick that makes the water carafe even more useful...

Use a bottle with a screw cap! I was building a little guest cottage in Colorado, and we used wine bottles as water bottles. The bottle's dark color kept the water cool and the screw cap meant that the bottle was portable! You don't have to be working on a construction site to make this useful. You could take your new water bottle anywhere you might need a cool drink. Of course, if you're afraid of getting looks as you take a drink, you could always save the water bottle for a backyard party!
