We’ve long thought that one of the best ways to ruin a perfectly good cocktail (or any drink, for that matter) would be to use non-filtered ice cubes. For one, just look at the difference between filtered (left) and non-filtered (right) ice cubes above! The difference is really amazing. For the most optimal ice cube, we should add, double boil Mavea-filtered water before icing!
Today, we got an added, enthusiastic endorsement of the Mavea-filtered ice cube by, none other than, cocktail connoisseur, Warren Bobrow, saying in his Memorial Day weekend cocktail post today:
“… I made some giant ice cubes using my Mavea pitcher for this cocktail. Up here in the country our water is full of minerals that can taint the flavor of the cocktails and especially your ice. I don’t like stuff floating around in my ice.
The Mavea makes my ice taste like ice, not like dirty rocks.”
