Soft drinks are teeth sweeteningly delicious. That is undeniable. Slushies capture all that is good about coke and its ilk but adds tongue tingling snowflakes into the mix. It's absolutely perfect for the summer. But how can we soft drink sipping peasants experience the rare beauty of slushies at home? With a little bit of magic and a bit more of science.
Grant Thompson, the mastermind behind awesome tricks to do at home, has perfected the formula of making instant slushies with soft drinks. Like how he instantly turned water into ice, Thompson can turn liquid into delicious slush in no time.
Basically all you need to do is shake up a room temperature bottle or can of coke or whatever and put it in the freezer until it's juuust about to freeze. He found the perfect time for a 500ml bottle to spend in the freezer was 3 hours and 15 minutes. Then, pour the contents into a cold cup and watch it become slush (alternatively you can add an ice cube or shake up the bottle). Enjoy your summer folks. [Grant Thompson]
