Hello all.Â I just got back from Tales of the Cocktail, the cocktail world’s booze-soaked yearly festival in New Orleans.Â I will post about the seminar I was in, The Science of Stirring, very soon.Â In the mean time, if you want to learn some techno-cocktail techniques, Nils and I are doing a class this Wednesday evening at the FCI in downtown New York.Â See here. I figure half of the techniques will be stuff you can do at home –like clarifying lime juice; and half will be stuff you can’t –like rotary evaporation.Â Expect liquid nitrogen.

Eager to see the Tales seminar notes. The twitter feeds from participants were excellent.
If you could opine on the particular quality of water that makes for best ice — distilled or spring, hard or soft, etc. — that would be most appreciated.
What kind of ice are you trying to make? Clear ice?
Hard ice. Ice that breaks into large pieces, not shards, when cracked and that won’t fracture when shaken, in particular.
To get really clean ice you need to de gas the water.
Best done in a sonicator with a little vaccuum applied.
Will this class be offered again in the future?
Yes it will!
i live in New Mexico, so attending is pretty much out of the question. how about those seminar notes???????
From the BAR class? I don’t have those. I was only there for my portion of the thing.
