The Christmas season is here in full swing. Even if you have started to prepare for the winter holidays since early November, the incentive to prepare for Christmas is building as we get closer to the big day. When planning Christmas activities with your family, you will want to make it as full of holiday cheer as possible. Are you shocked that dry ice can help you out in this department? Below are a handful of dry ice Christmas activities for you to use this year!
There are a bunch of different recipes on the internet on how to create a snazzy Christmas cocktail. Adding a bit more flair to your drinks adds a piece of dry ice to each serving. The ice will sublimate, and its notorious fog will rise and then overflow from the glass. Make sure that all of the ice disappears before taking a sip. Contact with this ice can burn you badly, especially if ingested. When you handle dry ice, remember to wear protective tongs or gloves. Never handle this ice with your bare hands, either. When done correctly, you and your family can enjoy smoky cocktails that brighten up your home
Even so, there is no need to leave out the younger family members from the dry ice Christmas fun. During the summertime, one can make root beer, carbonated fruit, and other fizzy drinks by mixing in dried ice. Dry ice is a type of frozen carbon dioxide and the very thing that makes drinks bubbly. The same can be done during Christmas. Turn the fruit punch into a frosty, fizzy drink by adding in this dried ice and allowing it to sublimate.
Even if the vapors are a bit too showy for your taste, you can still find that dry ice is a big lifesaver for your foods you wish to keep frozen. If you are without a freezer or need to ship foods during the holidays, dry ice is your solution to keeping your goods fresh. When housing the ice, make sure that you keep it within an insulated container with space to allow the carbon dioxide gas to release. Place the ice at the bottom of the cooler, place cardboard, newspaper, towel on the very top, and then place your perishables on the top.
