Clear Ice Diamond in Cocktails
Japanese Bartenders stand out with their technique and obsession with details.
When you order a whiskey or Whiskey based Cocktail bartender will hand carve an ice ball, Ice Cube, or diamond out of a block of ice that perfectly fits in your glass.
It's not only for presentation but to also preserve a cocktail.
The ice they use is crystal clear, so it dilutes slower.

I already made a full episode about Japanese Cocktails and techniques. You can watch it here:

My dad went to Japan for a few weeks, he said that at all of the bars he went to the drinks were heavily watered down (like half a water bottle mixed with a little bit of alcohol) and everyone was trying to impress each other with their drinking ability, he said one guy chugged a tall glass of iced tea while trying to pass it off as whiskey

It isn't really air bubbles that makes ice cloudy. Its more because of stress fractures when ice freezes from outside in. drop water into a square container to freeze it slowly and in layers.

"Doesn't melt into the drink, it just cools it" Big hmmmmmm moment
Slingshot23 Vor 19 Tage
@Sweginator108 No, but as the comment above mentioned, as there is a temperature gradient between the surrounding environment and the cube of ice, heat will flow towards ice. Thus, it will keep absorbing heat and melt. There is no way to stop the cube from absorbing more than latent heat, unless you do this in an isolated system.
Sweginator108 Vor 27 Tage
@ok just cuz there is energy transfer doesn't mean there is a change in state ¯\_(ツ) _/¯
John Cooper
John Cooper Vor Monat
@ok The ice doesn't have to become liquid in order to facilitate the transfer of heat, it is just a common side effect. If it was a mandatory part of the process then home freezers would be a considerably damper affair. Melting is the end result of the drink/ice combination seeking to achieve thermal equilibrium. As external sources are constantly adding additional heat into the mix, it's impossible for a thermal equilibrium to be achieved, so the ice continously absorbs energy until it turns into liquid.
ok Vor Monat
@nosequenosecuanto to cool a drink, heat has to move from the liquid to the ice. The heat that the ice absorbs turns ice into liquid water. If it didn’t melt, it wouldn’t cool down the drink as no energy would have moved.
Cooling and Melting arent strictly correlate in ice. There are a ton of materials that (obviously) can cool without melting. I think he was refering to the hability of the ice to cool without melting as fast as a ordinary icecube.

You can buy beer out of vending machines in Japan. They also have cigarette machines in public areas too. I don't smoke anymore, but when I was in Tokyo I would buy a couple beers out of the nearby vending machine before I went back to my hotel room for the night.

@Platinum Sky but as i said, technically he’s obvs right, i just pointed out that you don’t technically need it
Kern Vor 25 Tage
@Platinum Sky I wanted to make a claim regarding consistency aswell as mass, sry i phrased it wrong, i meant more ice close to one another on a molecular level. Also it melting 7% more after 10 minutes is insignificant because most of the time theres a total of 10-12cl of actual drink in the glass (if it’s a cocktail) and 4cl if its a whisky (or about 5.5 in an old fashioned), which most people drink in or in less than 10 minutes. Not to mention that an old fashioned and cocktails are already diluted because they are shaken, which makes the 7% of additional dilution even more insignificant. The 4cl of whisky aren’t meant to be served on ice or in a tumbler anyways imo.
Platinum Sky
Platinum Sky Vor 26 Tage
@Kern Actually it's not, to begin with your second comment makes a claim regarding a difference in total mass of water which he debunks in his video, the second part claiming that it's insignificant, which again is debunked in the video, basically everything that you just said was completely untrue.

Buggaton Vor Monat
I'm seeing a lot of misinformation about ice and how it interacts with drinks so here's a quick (slow) explanation: There are three things which cause a drink to cool due to ice presence. Firstly there's the heat equilibrium where heat will radiate into the ice in order to maintain a balance of temperature. This is a weak and minor factor. Secondly there is the state transition where ice on the outside of the cube has gained enough heat to transition to water. When a solid becomes a liquid it requires more energy to initiate the state change. This means that the ice chills the drink by more than just the difference in temperature. Thirdly there's the dilution where freshly melted ice is now 0 degree water which mixes into the drink both cooling it and diluting it. Using "cloudy" ice will inevitably lead to a faster chilling process but faster dilution due to the irregular structure leading to higher surface area. If you drink your drink quickly, cloudy ice will chill it faster. Over a longer period, crystal ice will keep it cold and less diluted for longer but not as cold. Either way, dilution and chilling removes flavour from the drink and is only recommended for overly flavoured beverages (high sugar) or poor quality drinks (most lager, rough/low grade spirits). That said, drink your drink however you like it and everyone who says you're doing it incorrectly can go fuck themselves. Their advice is suggestion only, find what you like and enjoy it. Don't be scared to experiment or try something new but don't let people ruin how you like your drinks.
