Step 1: Gather What You Will Need
What you will need:
- A drink (any drink will work for making a slushy)
- 2 Plastic Bags
- Some ice
Step 2: Pour Drink Into Plastic Bag
Pour the drink into one of the plastic bags. Make sure that you seal the plastic bag completely to ensure no spills.
Step 3: Put Plastic Bag Inside Other Bag
Put the plastic bag with the drink in it inside of the other plastic bag. Again, make sure that the plastic bag with drink in it is completely sealed.
Step 4: Fill Bag With Ice
Fill the outer bag with ice. Make sure to leave enough room to be able to close the bag.
Step 5: Pour Salt in Bag
Pour salt into the outer bag. You should be pouring the salt on top of the ice. How will this work? Salt and ice create a chemical reaction that "superchill" your inside drink. This will require quite a bit of salt.
Step 6: Shake Bag for About 5 Minutes
Now seal the outer plastic bag that is containing everything and shake. Shake the bag for a good 3 - 5 minutes or until you can visually see the drink become a slush state.
WARNING : The bag will get very cold, so consider using a towel to shake and handle the bag.
Step 7: Enjoy!
After shaking the bag for about 5 minutes, the inside drink will have became a slushy! Do this with any drink including soda, juice, or just water!
