How To Cool A Drink In 2 Minutes

During summer, we all want something cold to drink. In the hot season, sometimes happens to desire a cold drink right in the moment we don’t have a cold one and you eager to feel more refreshed.  If you organize a party, you have unannounced guests or you just forgot to refrigerate the drinks you wanted cold, we have a quick trick for you.

You need:

  • water
  • ice cubes
  • salt

Take a bowl and fill a half of it with tap water. Add ice cubes and 2-3 tablespoons of salt. Mix! Place the drinks you want to cool and mix after 1 minute. The temperature of a drink will drop by about 19 degrees. This simple trick can be used for any type of drink, refreshing or alcoholic. The only requirement is to be tightly closed.

Why does this mixture works?

Normally, the ice melts as quickly as water freezes. By adding salt, the balance of frost and melting is ruined, causing water to frost harder. The melting phenomenon of ice requires a lot of energy, this energy is taken over from the warmth of the warm object (what is meant to be cooled).
The principle on which this phenomenon is based is the principle of thermodynamics, two substances with different temperatures will, over time, reach the thermal equilibrium.

So, from now on you can cool your drink very very fast!
