Cocktail Articles

Ice

Frozen water, usually in a cube. Make sure the water you use is clean and fresh, be careful of ice cubes from places where the tap water is not safe to drink. To make clear ice cubes use distilled water and boil it gently first to remove dissolved gases. In order for water to freeze its temperature must fall below 0c, to completely freeze a body of water takes time as the outer frozen layers protects in the inner liquid. During freezing heat energy is drawn out of the liquid and the molecules slow down, eventually binding rigidly to each other. When ice is added to a drink it assorbs a large amount of heat from the surrounding liquid until both reach the same temperature. Ice can come as cubes, crushed, cracked or in the shape of a swan!
