Pinterest and Instagram are full of recipes that use snow —think snow cones, slushy cocktails, and DIY ice cream. And while frozen margaritas sure sound like an ideal way to make the best of a blizzard, is it even safe to consume those freshly fallen flakes?

Do Energy Drinks + Booze = More Injuries?

  Do Energy Drinks + Booze = More Injuries? Mixing energy drinks with booze could be a recipe for trouble, according to a new study that says the not-so-smart party pairing increases the odds that someone will get hurt.Researchers in Canada analyzed results of 13 prior studies. Most reported a higher rate of injuries when alcohol was paired with an energy drink like Red Bull or Monster Energy compared to drinking alcohol alone, they said.

Boiling a marinade completely will make it safe to use as a baste, serve, and consume. However, once a marinade or sauce has come into contact with raw meat it is no longer safe to consume. But this doesn't mean that you have to throw it out when you are done marinating.

Snowflakes are born high up in the atmosphere when water vapor condenses and forms ice crystals around microscopic dust or pollen. By the time the flakes hit the ground, they've absorbed lots of other droplets and accumulated many more crystals—and what they contain is pretty disgusting. “Most atmospheric water and precipitation contains traces of gaseous and particulate contaminants,” explains Parisa A. Ariya, PhD, chair of the department of atmospheric and oceanic sciences at McGill University. Ariya coauthored a recent study that found snow absorbs toxic organic compounds in vehicle exhaust.

As gross as all that seems, it’s important to consider how much contamination we’re actually talking about—and how much is too much.

23 Things That Cause Cellulite

  23 Things That Cause Cellulite Avoid the cottage cheese dimples by tackling these common culprits! Cellulite is one of those panic-inducing words that has been freaking out women of all ages for years. I remember my mom giving me a look if I added cheese to anything I was trying to enjoy. "Maybe skip it or you'll see it on your thighs," she'd always warn. I'd roll my eyes; but as much as I hate admitting it, my mom was onto something. Cellulite is a pest that causes that dimpled-looking fat on your thighs, hips, butt and belly.

“It is well known amongst snow chemists that fresh Arctic snow goes very well with 15-year-old single malt whisky,” joked John Pomeroy, PhD, a water-resource and climate-change researcher at the University of Saskatchewan, in an interview with NPR last year.

In other words, if you don't live in an urban area with pollution and a lot of vehicle traffic, then eating snow is probably fine, says Ariya. “I give snow to my children in remote Canadian sites even just outside the city," she explains. "You should recognize that there is dilution of pollution from the emission source.”

Even if you live in a less-populated area, you still need to be careful about the snow you scoop up. We all know to steer clear of (cough) yellow snow; you should also avoid pink or “watermelon” snow as well. It owes its rosy hue to algae that live in melting snow, and those algae can have a laxative effect. Additionally, skip windblown (or “driven”) snow, which mixes with dirt and other ground-level contaminants. Plowed snow is another "don't"—it often contains sand and chemicals picked up from the road.

Long story short: In some cases, you’re better off using a shaved-ice machine to make dessert or your next cocktail. Don’t worry: Your Instagram followers will love those treats, too.
