You were holding what was called a "supercooled liquid." It was below its freezing point but not frozen, and because you had left it still, there was no nucleation point - no way for ice crystals to start forming. When you shook the bottle you either introduced an ice crystal into the liquid, or one of the impurities in the drink created a spot for ice crystals to attach to. Either way, the reaction propagated until it turned to slush.
