This week SeriousEats.com plunged into Cocktail Science with “5 Myths About Ice, Debunked” by new writer Kevin Liu of Science Fare. For those who have spent time staring at a cocktail wondering whether those large ice cubes make a difference, this article is for you. It talks about what makes ice cloudy and how to make it clear, whether it is ok to add ice to Scotch, if egg-based drinks benefit from a “dry shake”, and if shaking a martini really “Bruises” the gin. Serious Eats is one of my favorite food sites, and I just added Science Fare to my list too. Good reading.
