1. Beer (Not freezer Safe)
We all love A nice cold refreshing drink. This is a guide to keep handy to let you know what types of alchol are okay to put in the freezer, and which to keep in the fridge.
Note: If you are under the Legal Drinking Age for your country, Don't drink.
First of all, All alchol freezes, they just have a lower point on the thermometer at which they freeze, Because of this, some alcholoic drinks with high alcohol percentages are okay to keep in the freezer at home.
Alcahol freezes at -173F/-114C.
I start off with beer, although it is NOT safe to store in the freezer, it is the most common type of alcoholic bervarage, so i decided to list it first. Feel free to throw the can/bottle in there, but leave it in for a maximum of 15 minutes. Any longer then that can make the top burst off and the glass explode.
2. Wine (Not freezer Safe)
Wine bottles are the Crème brûlée of drinking. Folks enjoy drinking a glass with some cheese and crackers, and is generally not thought of as a party drink. Because the alcohol in wine comes about naturally because of fermentation, it is nearly not enough to be safely stored in the freezer over night. Like above, Store for up to 15 minutes to chill the bottle, then remove and serve.
3. Vodka (Freezer Friendly)
Vodka. Vodka is the Polish drink made popular in Russia for its high alcholic percentage and use within martini's and cocktails. Vodka is primarily a mix of water, pure ethanol, and flavourings, like that of a fermented potato. Legal vodka in the US must have an alchol content of 40% or over for it to be sold. This makes it completly safe to store in the freezer for as long as you want. Vodka will never freeze in a household freezer, and should always be kept there for quality consumption. Below are 2 popular brands of Vodka.
4. Rum (Freezer Friendly)
Rum gets its flavour from the oak barrels it is destilled in after being created through sugar cane, which turns into molasses. I have personally seen the creation of this type of alchohol through a tour of the Bundaberg Rum
factory. Rum can be a fun party drink and is commonly ordered as mixers in Bars and Disco's. Rum has a high alcohol percentage and can be stored in the freezer for as long as you like, though, some people prefer to store in in the cupboard as rum is hardly ever consumed alone, but with a soft drink mixed in such as Lemonade or Ginger Ale.
5. Scotch/Whiskey (Not freezer Safe)
Scotch Whiskey is typically known as the Gentlemans drink, pouring in liquid only 1/4th of the glass into the special brandy mug you see in all the movies. Scotch Whiskey is split into 5 catergories. Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Single Grain Scotch Whisky, Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, Blended Grain Scotch Whisky, and Blended Scotch Whisky. Scotch whiskey is an aged drink, and can only be legally sold as Scotch Whiskey if it has been destilled in an Oak barrel for up to 3 years.
The drink tends to be drunken alone so it is generally found stored away in the cupboard, or in the fridge, 10 minutes before consumption. Some Scotch experts even say that cooling the drink makes it lose some of its naturally aromas when first opening. This being the same case with Baileys drinks.
