Answer

Conversion of liquid to solid requires thermal energy and it is an exothermic process. But the melting of ice is an endothermic process.This means that ice, when placed in beverages, takes in heat or absorbs heat from it and melts down.Thus, beverages cool down when ice cubes are placed around them.
