What equation do you think you need to use here? What information do you think you need to have to work out this problem?

Wouldn't the technician have to lower the temperature to the freezing point? Do you know an equation that related heat energy to temperature?

Yes

Q = Mas x (umm, 4200 for water :) ) x (Tf - To)

You will need to get the specific heat capacity of ethanol, the melting and freezing temperatures. Look those up.
