Summertime & Ice Cold Drinks go hand in hand but what if that drink is room temp, or even worse hot? Eek! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made the mistake of not chilling my tasty beverages ahead of time. Then I have to resort to chilling them in the quickest way possible, for I will not be the one standing there with an empty coozie, that is crazy talk.
I’m too impatient to wait on them to chill in the cooler & I’ve had numerous explosions in my freezer after forgetting cans in there…oopsie! I realized that I need to find another way of cooling my drinks in a short amount of time. I actually got this idea from an episode of Mythbusters, where they tested a variety of ways to cool down drinks (one of the ways was using a fire extinguisher, but I’m not THAT desperate) The method I’m going to share with you is super easy & only requires water, ice and salt.
Here ya go:
- Just fill up the sink, a bucket etc with a mix of ice & water ( I do about 50/50)
- Then add a big handful of salt to the ice water (more if you’re trying to cool several drinks)
If I’m really in a rush, I swirl the can/bottle around in the mixture, but you don’t have to do that. In a matter of minutes, you’ll be enjoying your beverage & thinking, Thank you Momasaurus ;)
