  1. Alcohol Ice Cube Machine Available Soon

    Alcoholic BeverageThose who love their beverages 'on the rocks' all know the one big drawback. Eventually, the ice melts and dilutes the beverage. For high-end bars and restaurants, this can be mitigated somewhat with an ice machine that produces a type of ice that is larger, denser, and melts more slowly. It's generally referred to as 'gourmet' ice. However, one inventor hopes to make this problem a thing of the past entirely.

    Louisville inventor Jason Sherman has developed an ice machine that makes ice cubes from any alcohol based liquid.

    Sherman's company, Beyond Zero, will be soon selling a

    Big Bear Lake, located in San Bernadino County, California, is beautiful when covered in ice. There's only one problem. Daily fluctuating temperatures can cause the ice to not be as strong as it looks.

    This past Wednesday, first responders in San Bernadino County took part i

  5. Slimy Ice Machines!

    SlimeRestaurants face health inspections to make sure that they are clean and ready to prepare and serve food to customers. Inspectors look for a number of things that could possibly be violations, and the ice machine is often one of the things inspected. Inspectors expect a clean, sanitary machine.

    The Fulton County Health Inspector recently paid a visit to Joy Wings & Deli restaurant on Campbellton Road in Atlanta. They found a number of serious violations, causing t

  6. Icy Life Hacks

    Scraping IceWith the recent news of record amounts of snowfall in the northeast, everyone is preparing themselves for the arduous chores of shoveling snow and scraping ice off of their windshields. Automobiles have come far in their time, but they still do not hold good friends status with the ice and the cold, which can produce dangerous conditions for your vehicle, from tires to windshields.

    One time consuming chore for automobile owners is the task of scraping ice off of windshield glass. It can take 20-30 minutes from your morning, so you must either wake up earlier or dismiss other chores to accomplish this task.

    Here are three life hacks to assist you in accomplishing this task no one wants to do so that you can spend your time doing other, more enjoyable things instead.

  7. Snow Ice Cream

    Snow Ice CreamIn the northern hemisphere, it's that time of year. It's time for snowmen, snowball fights, and the detestable chore of shoveling snow. Snow, however, can be used to make a delightful winter treat: ice cream.

    If you want to make snow ice cream, using freshly fallen snow is best in this endeavor. Setting out bowls to catch fresh white powder is the best way to accomplish this chore. However, if you are concerned about cleanliness and hygiene, you can also use shaved ice. Avoid packed, hard snow, as it will not work as well as the fresh variety.

    To make this fun, delicious ice cream, you'll need the following:

  8. Why is Salt Necessary for Ice Cream?

    Melting IceSalt. Salt is used in mixtures to melt snow and ice on our roadways to make them safer during winter weather. However, it is also used to make that delicious dessert and treat, ice cream. It can seem like a conundrum. How can something that melts snow and ice be used to make something that is frozen, like ice cream?

    It turns out that salt doesn't literally melt snow and ice. It does, however, lower the temperature needed to keep ice solid. Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and adding salt to water will actually lower that temperature, depending on how much salt is added.

    When it comes to ice cream, the sugar and fats needed for this delicious concoction actually interfere w
