Have you ever noticed the crystal clear ice cube chilling down a cocktail in your rocks glass? Do you know that some bartenders take their ice very seriously and begin it to carve it into spheres or other shapes until they get their desired shape? We all love the artistic illusions, the unadorned reflections and the glass-like clarity of these ice cubes. Ever wondered how you can make these glass-like clear cubes at home? We’ve got a fantastic technique of making clear ice.
Pro Tip: To make clear ice at home, the trick is to decrease the freezing speed of your ice. Wondering how to slow down the freezing speed? It’s simple! Use a small insulated cooler which you can place inside your freezer. The best thing about the cooler is that anything inside that cooler freezes slower as compared to our freezers, thus, giving the air bubbles a chance to run away before they get caught inside the ice.
Pro Tip: The trick of getting the perfect clear ice is to take the ice out of the cooler before the cloudy part freezes, or to chip it off afterward.
