Up next in Bar Life & the Art of Drinking (37 videos)
Whether you're in a pub or a club, you'll be the life of the party, bar none, thanks to this Howcast video series on bar life and the art of drinking.
You Will Need
- Bag of ice
- Rock salt
Fill the cooler
When you get to the beach, put ocean or lake water in the cooler – enough to fill the bottom quarter of the cooler.
Empty your bag of ice into the cooler. Don't fill the cooler all the way – leave it about a third to half empty.
Add one cup of rock salt for every three pounds of ice.
Put the beer into the cooler. If the cans are still in six-pack rings, separate them to let water circulate around them.
Swirl the ice and water around the beer for a few minutes. The salt is lowering its freezing point, just as it would in an ice-cream maker.
Use the towel to wipe the salt, water, and any dirt off a cold beer. Pop it open and propose a toast to science.
