I need to know this for a c̫o̫ςκtail recipe. The recipe is calling for 2 cups of water, but I want to use Ice instead. Would it be the same (1 cup of water = 1 cup of ice)? Thx in advance.
Think of it – there is very little expansion when you freeze water. Fill up your ice cube tray and freeze it – did it overflow? No.
A cup of water = a cup of ice the problem is measuring the ice because it does not fit into your container without gaps.
You could use the cold water displacement method to measure your ice.
Fill a two cup measure with one cup of cold water.
Add cubes to fill to two cups and quickly pour off the water. You now have 1 cup of ice.
If I were you I would count how many ice cubes that is and mark it on the recipe.
Many recipes I have for example marguerita for 2 drinks calls for 7 ice cubes to make the frozen version.
I use 7 ice cubes for many drinks such as daiquiri, marguerita or frozen grasshopper to make 2 drinks.
These are Atkins friendly (low carb)
(I buy the bags of frozen unsweetened strawberries and make these constantly)
1 cup strawberries
3 or 4 oz lime juice
3 or 4 oz rum
4 packets sweetener
7 ice cubes
(good with coconut rum also or coconut flavour for low carb/no sugar)
(I have been totally knocked on my *** with this one)
3 ounces tequila
3 ounces lime juice (fresh squeezed or bottled unsweetened)
1 teaspoon Boyajian orange oil (I didn’t have this you could try a bit orange or lemon extract but its not needed)
4 packets sugar substitute
7 ice cubes
Blend in blender
This makes 2. 4.5 carbs each
You need to use ice and serve over oce. Or fill a mezsuring cup up about 1/2 way with ice and add water to thr 1 cup line if you want your drinks chilled but not diluted.
And unless you freeze 1 cup of water 1 cup of ice does Not make 1 cup of water. It depends on the size and shape of the ice cubes.
true… a golf ball had a volume or 1/2 cup so any thing that is 1 half cup can be rolled into a ball to look like ice cream
measure the water and freeze it you will have a little less than 1 cup so add a little more water to it to make it even.
