A popular YouTube video claims you can stay cool during the heat of the summer by creating a refreshing "instant slushie" with your favorite brand of soft drink. Is it true? There's only one way I'll believe it, and that's by trying it myself.

Today's experiment test comes courtesy of loyal listener, Yesenia, who sent me the link to the video below through a Facebook message and asked if I would be interested in trying to recreate it.

Looks pretty simple, right? Let's find out.

If you stumble across a life hack or relatively simple experiment you'd like me to try, shoot me the link in the comments below, tweet me at @ryano106, send me a Facebook message, or just drop a quick e-mail to ryano@1061evansville.com.
