Introduction: Fast Way to Cool Your Soda!!

Ever bought a 2-liter bottle (or even smaller) of soda from the store's aisle racks, only to get home and want some cold soda NOW? Well, in a few minutes you can have a nice cold one!

I always hate to cool some warm soda by dumping a bunch of ice into it. It always dilutes it by melting the ice so fast and making it watery and less carbonated. This way will retain most of the fizziness and won't dilute it at all!

Step 1: You Will Need:

a 2-quart/liter pitcher
a Ziploc gallon Storage bag (Storage rather than Freezer, allows for more cold transfer)
a tray of ice cubes (the smaller cubes, the better)
1/4 cup of Kosher or other large salt crystals (I recommend only edible salts, not the kind you'd use on your driveway, in case of leakage) Regular table salt will do in a pinch...
1/4 cup water

Step 2: Dump the Ice and Salt Into the Ziploc Container

This might even fit in a quart-size bag.

Step 3: Add Some Cold Water

Add 1/4 cup of cold water to aid the ice/salt cooling combination.

Step 4: Compress and Secure

Squeeze as much air as possible out of the bag and secure it.

Step 5: Place

Place the bag in the pitcher. The salt and water and ice are working already!

Step 6: Pour and Wait (a Short Time)

Pour your soda into the pitcher. Depending on your ice/salt/water combination, you may have some cold soda ready in as little as 7-10 minutes. The more you pour in, the longer you will have to wait.

Step 7: Pour Out!

When it is ready, pour into your glass! Add ice as preferred, but now it won't melt as fast as if you'd added it to the warm soda.

    True. Except that it didn't put Einstein's pants on at the one party.
