Mix an Exploding Drink

Wired has a recipe for an exploding drink called the Manhattan Project. You can try to make it taste like a Manhattan, but its not really necessary. The point is that there will be a delayed-reaction explosion to surprise your guest. Link

For those of us with access to liquid nitrogen, freezing the mentos in ice fast would be no problem. Gonna have to try it and report back.

@2, Wired would go through the trouble of creating a graphic/etc for this and publish it without testing it? Seems pretty unlikely...

If the problem is that the water dissolves the surface of the mentos, then a solution would be to make two ice cube halves with a groove hollowed out in each one large enough for the mentos. You can put the mentos in the groove and fuse the pieces together just by squeezing the two together. The ice will refreeze as soon as you let go. When the ice starts to melt in the drink, the mentos should deploy and surprise the drinker. Make sure the ice is cold enough to not immediately gooey up the mentos.
