COCKTAIL PROFILE

The Importance of Ice Tools in Your Bar

Cocktails and mixed drinkswould be no where without ice. Think about it - this is the one ingredient universal to almost every cocktail made (with the obvious exception of hot drinks and a few cocktails like the Champagne Cocktail). Ice not only chills drinks , but as it melts or is shaken it becomes a part of the mix and because of this, the frozen water deserves more than a little attention.
