Full Answer

If the soda contains sugar, this ingredient also lowers the freezing point, and the mixture will freeze around 28 degrees. Different formulas of soda also change the freezing point. For example, a diet soda without sugar will have a higher freezing point than soda with the normal amount of sugar, but it will still need to reach a temperature lower than 32 degrees to freeze.

    At what temperature does Champagne freeze?

    A:

    Champagne freezes at a slightly lower temperature than water, or between 15 and 22 degrees Fahrenheit. Freezing champagne is not recommended, as doing so can cause the champagne's bottle to explode, and freezing it can ruin the quality of the wine itself. The freezing point of champagne and other wines is lower than that of water because the composition of the liquid is a combination of water and alcohol.
