为什么不能把伏特加放进冰箱?

You Should Never Put Vodka In The Freezer. Here's Why

As a kid, one of the first things
当你还是个孩子的时侯
you learn about the freezer is that
对于冰箱最初的认识是
it’s not a good idea to
并不是所有饮料
keep every beverage inside of it.
都适合放在其中
At best, you’ll have to wait a long time
运气好的话 要等很久
for your block of icy beverage to thaw before drinking it.
冻成块的饮料才能融化
At worst, cans will burst open
运气糟的话 罐子会爆裂
and leave a big, fat, sticky mess.
还会留下黏腻的烂摊子
But when you got older
但当你长大
and started buying booze,
开始喝酒之后
someone may have let you in on a little secret:
有人可能会告诉你一个小秘密
You can stash your alcohol in the freezer
你可以把酒冷藏在冰箱里
and it won’t ever freeze solid.
它永远不会冻结
That means you can pour yourself
这就意味着你可以
an ice-cold shot whenever you want.
随时喝到冰镇的酒
Enter Francois Thibault,
弗朗索瓦·蒂博
the creator of Grey Goose vodka,
灰雁伏特加的创始人
in a December 2018 interview
2018年12月接受
with Business Insider,
《商业内幕》的采访
he claimed that over-chilling your vodka
他声称 伏特加在过低温度下冷藏
has the potential to mask its delicate flavor.
可能会掩藏它细腻的香味
But is that actually true?
但这是真的吗?
In order to answer that question,
为了回答这个问题
let’s take a look at the science
让我们来一起探讨
that keeps vodka from freezing.
伏特加不冻结的科学原理
We know that beer freezes and wine freezes,
我们知道啤酒和葡萄酒都会结冰
and boozy popsicles are most certainly a thing.
酒精棒冰也是绝对存在的
So why doesn’t your bottle of vodka turn into a giant 80-proof ice cube
那为何当你把一瓶伏特加放进冰箱
when you put it in the freezer?
却不会变成一个80磅的大冰块?
As Reader’s Digest explains,
《读者文摘》中是这样解释的
at around 40 percent alcohol,
伏特加的酒精含量大概是40%
vodka’s freezing point hovers at around -16 degrees F.
它的冰点在负16华氏度左后
Meanwhile, the inside of an average freezer tends to be about zero degrees Fahrenheit.
同时 普通冰箱内的温度在0华氏度左右
If you really want a vodka-sicle,
如果你很想吃伏特加棒冰
you’ll need to get your hands on some sort of super-industrial freezer,
你得用超级工业冰箱
or perhaps some liquid nitrogen.
或液氮来制作它
Of course, not all liquors freeze at the same rate
当然 不是所有的酒都能按同样的速度
or at the same temperature.
或在同一个温度下冻结
It really depends on the alcohol content of the drink in question.
实际上 这取决于我们提及饮料中的酒精含量
According to The Spruce Eats,
根据《云杉饮食》
beer and wine usually contain
啤酒和葡萄酒的酒精含量
less than 15 percent alcohol,
一般不超过15%
so they’ll both freeze solid when left in the freezer.
所以把它们放进冰箱 都会冻结
Meanwhile, low-proof liqueurs like Irish cream
而爱尔兰奶油那样低度数的酒
are about 20 percent alcohol.
酒精含量约为20%
That means they might get slushy in the freezer,
这意味着它们冰冻会变黏稠
but they won’t completely solidify.
但不会完全冻结
Any type of booze that’s above 32 percent alcohol or 64 proof,
任何酒精含量超过32%或高于64度的酒
should be okay to store at sub-freezing temperatures for an indefinite period of time.
可在冰点温度以下无限期保存
So why don’t we freeze other booze?
那我们为何不冰其他酒呢
Once again, it’s all about science.
这仍然与科学有关联
At least according to the wine and liquor experts at VinePair,
至少VinePair的酒类专家表示
alcoholic beverages contain something called volatiles,
酒精饮料受热后
which are released as the liquors warm up.
其中会产生某种气泡物质
Vodka is a less complex spirit than most,
伏特加比多数酒成分要简单
and it contains the fewest volatiles.
并且它的气泡含量最低
Meanwhile, a liquor like whiskey obtains much of its distinct character from volatiles.
而像威士忌一类的饮料 气泡很多
Kevin Lu, chief cocktail maker at the Tin Pan, tells VinePair
Tin Pan的首席鸡尾酒师 Kevin Lu 告诉VinePair
there are comparatively fewer volatiles in vodka,
伏特加气泡含量相对较少
while the whole point of aging whiskey
而陈年威士忌的主要特点
is to create desirable volatiles.
就是能产生大量气泡
While he admits that freezing whiskey
然而他承认冷藏威士忌
won’t actually destroy any of the volatiles in whiskey,
并不会减少酒中气泡
he points out that
他指出
they’re just harder to detect when you have cold whiskey.
喝冰镇威士忌时 不易感受到里面气泡
VinePair has a rule of thumb
VinePair有一条经验法则
when it comes to determining what liquors should definitely never be frozen.
来决定哪一类酒 绝对不能冷藏
Basically, anything that’s barrel-aged shouldn’t be put in the freezer,
基本上 木桶酿酒 都不能冷藏
and that’s that.
就是这样
And now back to the rabble-rousing Francois Thibault.
回到煽动人心的弗朗索瓦·蒂博
After speaking to him, Business Insider reported that
《商业内幕》结束对他的采访后报道
with vodka, you’re hiding the more sophisticated aromas and flavors
当你把伏特加在极低温度储存时
when storing it at a really low temperature.
会掩藏掉其中绵长迷人的芳香
Of course, that only applies if you’re drinking the stuff straight up
当然 这只会在冷藏后直接喝伏特加
or enjoying a vodka-forward cocktail
或享用类似烈马丁尼鸡尾酒
like a deathly dry martini.
如伏特加鸡尾酒才会发生
Are you serving that ape a martini?
你给这只猩猩喝马提尼?
She’s allowed. One will calm her down.
她可以喝 这会让她平静下来
According to Thibault,
根据Thubault的说法
the optimum temperature for Grey Goose is 0 to 4 degrees Celsius,
灰雁的最佳饮用温度 是0到4摄氏度
which translates to 32 to 39 degrees Fahrenheit.
相当于32到39华氏度
Coincidentally, that happens to be the exact temperature of vodka served on the rocks,
这也恰是摇滚乐会上提供伏特加的温度
but even Thibault doesn’t recommend drinking the stuff at room temperature.
但Thibault不建议引用常温伏特加
Bogue Sound Distillery,
博格之声酿酒厂
agrees with their rival vodka maker,
赞同它的对手灰雁的说法
but they also suggest that
但他们也表示
this temperature can be achieved by strong vodka in the refrigerator
烈伏特加可冷藏以达最佳引用温度
or by mixing it in a cocktail shaker with ice.
或将其放在调酒器里加冰搅拌
Thibault acknowledges that if you tend to drink cheap, low-quality vodka,
Thibault认为 如果你想喝便宜低质的伏特加
then you’ll probably want it served at a sub-zero temperature
那么你将其冷藏到零度以下
in order to hide any aggressive, burning notes.
来掩藏它那浓烈刺鼻的味道
Or, you know, you could always just have a vodka soda or something.
或许 你可以喝点伏特加苏打水或其他饮料
And here’s one more hack to ensure that
还有一个方法
even the cheapest vodka
即使是最便宜伏特加
doesn’t ruin your cocktail.
也能确保它不会毁了你的鸡尾酒
Simply use a water pitcher
只要用一个滤水罐
to replicate the filtration process that all the pricey brands boast about.
重复一遍所有大牌都吹嘘的过滤工序
To be on the safe side,
为了安全起见
you should run the vodka through the pitcher a few times,
你还是得将伏特加多过滤几次
four is recommended,
四次为最佳
but the bottom line is this,
但最重要的是
the filtering will go a long way towards the harsh in that budget booze.
过滤可以大大改善廉价酒的口味
