If you've flown on an airplane in the last decade or so, you've likely encountered the 3-1-1 rule: No liquids more than 3.4 ounces can pass through airport security.

According to , "Frozen liquid items are allowed through the checkpoint as long as they are frozen solid when presented for screening. If frozen liquid items are partially melted, slushy, or have any liquid at the bottom of the container, they must meet 3-1-1 liquids requirements."

But you'll have to freeze it ahead of time, and make sure it gets to the airport and through the security line frozen solid. If your regular-sized drink is at all melted, TSA will make you dump it out.
