Ice for Cocktails

This video shows you how to make the best ice for cocktails. No foolin’. The secret to a great cocktail is starting with good ingredients, which includes the ice. After all, ice often makes up half the volume of the drink. The key is to use filtered or distilled water, boiled to clarify (optional), poured into clean trays, and allowed only a short life in the freezer. As Eric Felten says, 'Use ice untainted by municipal chlorine and free from memories of trout caught last summer.' Seriously, good, fresh ice can make the difference between good and great cocktails. Watch the video, then get Lorem Ipsum’s 5-star recipe (yes, there’s a recipe!) for Ice for Cocktails.
