When pondering recently about the kind of cocktails I want to drink at the beach but can’t bring with me from home, it hit me: slushies. Just think how refreshing a cold, fruity slushy would be at the beach — but also how it would melt by the time you touched the sand.
Using the idea of the endothermic process (where a system absorbs energy from its surroundings), we are going to create a slushy machine with the help of ice, salt, and two zip-top bags. Basically we’re going to attempt — through agitation — to create a hand-held ice cream maker to make frozen rosé within minutes.
