It is because the type of alcohol that people can drink is called ethanol and has a freezing point of -114°C, much lower than a domestic freezer can reach. However, ethanol is always mixed with water and other flavourings before being drunk and this raises the melting point.

This means it is unlikely that you could freeze vodka, gin or whiskey in a domestic freezer. Beer and wine, however, have a lower percentage of alcohol and so can sometimes be frozen. A lot depends on the freezer. Domestic freezers tend to work at around -20°C but this can vary enormously.

 

 

I hope you learned something from this short fact! Don't worry there are still multiple ways to chill your drinks. Like using whiskey stones

 

 

Cheers!
