Can a frozen liquid go through airport security?


Could you freeze your drink to a solid and then take it through airport security?

Answer: You are not allowed to bring a solid through if it is going to become a liquid at some point. However, if you have a medical issue and you have to bring through something like insulin that needs to be kept cool, you are allowed to bring it with ice as long as you have a letter from the doctor. The ice will get tested through a specialist machine at the airport to make sure it is only solid water.
