Puzzle - Answer

A couple were invited a local party, they arrived early and were offered some of the freshly made, iced punch. They couldn't stay at the party very long and left early. The next day they found out that everyone else who had drunk the punch had been poisoned and had fallen very ill. Why were the couple not ill?

 [Ref: ZBSE]

Answer: The poison was in the ice cubes and as the couple had arrived early the ice had not yet melted. As the evening progressed the ice melted and poisoned the punch.
