There’s snow outside our office here at Sip & Savor, which made us think of one of our favorite chilly treats - slushies.

The Maryland Science Center has a great how-to on making your own snowy slushy. The science behind making the slushy is supercooling the soda. The guide says “[a] supercool liquid is cold enough to want to freeze, but needs a trigger to actually turn into a solid. The trigger in this experiment is the frost on the metal bowl. When you pour the liquid into the bowl, the frost acts as a nucleation site - a place for the ice crystals in the soda to state forming.”
