Will Drinks Freeze In Garage?

Yes, if they are very cold.

One of the simple laws of thermodynamics is that the energy required to raise any substance through one degree is exponentially more depending on how much energy is needed to raise it just 1°C. To use an example, let’s take a drink at 8°C outside in -30°C temperatures. The task of raising it 10 degrees Celsius will require more than 3x as much energy as raising it 2 degrees Celsius, because all the atoms would need to jump up 4 more spaces on their corresponding heat-equation graph. As you can imagine, this forces the drink harder to freeze once its put inside a garage where its near zero degrees Celcius for example.
