Beyond Zero has created a machine that freezes alcohol solid. For The $8,000, you get an icemaker that will freeze anything on the bar: beer, wine, cocktails, anything else you can buy at a liquor store. It’s an interesting way to combat dilution and to chill beverages.
But how low they’ll be chilled is a point of concern. A cube of 100-proof bottled-in-bond whiskey would be -25°F. Touching something of that temperature isn’t the worst thing you can do, but it’ll cause quick and serious injury.
And while keeping a frozen drink cold may be ideal, many beverages are designed to be served at drinkable, liquid temperatures—in fact whiskey is often best enjoyed at the temperature where a little evaporation makes certain flavors more pronounced.
If you want a 1 drink in non-liquid form, may we recommend a tasty powder?
