How to Make Crushed Ice

How to Make Crushed Ice

With warmer weather on the horizon, my thoughts have turned toward mint juleps, mojitos, and other drinks that require crushed ice. You don't need a fancy machine (or new refrigerator) to quickly make crushed ice at home. With a simple canvas, cotton, or linen bag (like the ones shoes sometimes come in) and heavy kitchen tool, you can have perfectly crushed ice in minutes. Here's my technique:

  1. Put a large handful of ice into the fabric bag and fold closed. You could use a plastic bag, but chances are, the ice shards will cut holes in the plastic, and you may end up with ice all over your counter.
  2. With a heavy kitchen tool (muddler, juicer, or hammer) bang the bag until the ice is crushed into small pieces.
  3. Use immediately in the cocktail of your choice.
