The test tube challenge
Default

I'm not very good at applying nail polish. Maybe I need more practice.

In other news, I got a Christmas present yesterday! No, it's not early; it was a package that must have travelled via surface mail, as it took weeks to get from the US to here.

A set of test tubes! Imagine going to a party and having cocktails and shooters served to you in a test tube... They're really cool, so now I think I shall have to undertake a project to make a rack for them. We've talked about the idea of getting test tubes for drinks, and I know Theresa had looked around for some, but I truly had no idea what to expect when opening the box. A very pleasant surprise.

Your challenge:

The test tubes hold more than a normal shot glass (I'm yet to measure how much), but less than a cocktail glass. Your challenge is to reply to this post with a cocktail suggestion. It could be a semi-potent cocktail to sip, or perhaps a shot that may or may not fill the tube. Be creative!

Ooh! That does sound cool! Dry ice sounds scary though... You'd say it's safe to use, so long as the dry ice stays in the bottom of the tube?

Well, Dry ice is JUST Carbon Dioxide. In the densities your going to be dealing with it there is no dangerous gases or volumes. You DO need to make sure you use it in a well ventilated area.. But if you breath it in its not toxic on its own.

The only problem with it is its temperature. Its at -78.5 Degrees C

If you accidently swallow that then you will burn the inside of your stomache. Well freeze burn to be more precise.

Google for "Dry Ice Expeirements" should get you some interesting stuff.
