Using dry ice
When using dry ice, you can not touch it with your bare hands. Use a pair of tongs to handle the dry ice. It’s also perfectly safe in cocktails as long as you use food grade dry ice. When in your cocktail, you must let the dry ice completely dissolve before enjoying your delicious concoction. Swallowing a piece of dry ice can cause injury.
