If you’re missing the glitter and rainbows of my regular posts, don’t fret, they’ll be back next week! For now, I’m going to teach you how to safely use dry ice to create a fog effect in drinks for my last Halloween trick.
There are two main points to remember about dry ice: always buy the food grade dry ice, and secondly, never ever touch it!*
As long as you don’t come into direct contact with it, and are using the food safe version, then you can use it in drinks, punch, as fog machines, the list goes on. The warmer the liquid that you’re dropping the ice into, the more fog that you’ll get.
Bust up the dry ice block by lightly dropping the bag on hard ground a few times, and using small chunks for each jar. Keep the remaining dry ice in a small cooler, and replenish the ice as the fog dies down.
And for those of you wondering how to make the colorful scientific flask, just fill it with mineral oil and sprinkles. I covered the top with press and seal paper and ribbon so no one would try and drink it!
*Sugar & Cloth is in no way encouraging the misuse of dry ice. Though dry ice can be safe when used & handled properly, you are using it at your own risk.
