The Precise Kitchen Elf is on a mission - to cook from his The Hungry Scientist Handbook: Electric Birthday Cakes,Edible Origami, and Other DIY Projects for Techies, Tinkerers, and Foodies by Patrick Buckley and Lily Binns - and he's whipping up some mad scientist kitchen fun this afternoon. First up: Fizzy Lemonade. He adapted the recipe because he wanted to use agave syrup.
Ingredients makes 4 servings
- juice from 1 organic lemon
- 2 C cold water
- 1/3 C blue agave nectar
- 4 1" pieces of dry ice
- pre-chilled glasses
Measure out all of your ingredients. Pour the lemon juice, water, and blue agave nectar into a jar.
Gently shake the jar to mix the nectar into the juice and water. Now for the fun part...
Pour the lemonade into pre-chilled glasses. Wearing gloves and using tongs, cut 1" pieces of dry ice from the chunk.
Carefully drop the dry ice into the lemonade
Sit back and watch the magic!
