Fizzy Lemonade {My Hungry Scientist}

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!

Enjoy the fizzy result!
