Gin, Tonic, and Temperature
The weather is getting warmer. You'd like to sit outside in the sun, enjoying a cold beverage. However, while you're sipping your gin and tonic on the rocks, your ice is slowly melting. A drink without ice gets warm quickly, but a drink with ice becomes watered down while you're drinking. Oh cruel fate!
What's the solution? Science!
The good folks at Kaiser Penguin have tested (and graphed!) several possible solutions to the problem of how to make a temperature-controlled drink. So, go get your geek on and check out the way to make an optimized gin and tonic!
