Does Clear Ice Really Make a Difference?

  • Does Clear Ice Make a Difference in Your Drink?
    In the previous episode where I made a Clear Ice Diamond, I mentioned that Japanese bartenders use clear ice since it chills drink better and dilutes slower. So I needed to test it myself.
    In my warm room, I prepared one clear and one cloudy cube with a weight of 102 grams.
    Added 2 oz | 60 ml of Jim Beam Bourbon and stir them both 20 times. Let it sit there for 10 minutes. The cloudy ice temperature was 39.9°F | 4.4°C And in the Clear ice 36.7°F | 2.6°C weight difference was 7 grams.
    I used a pour tester, and it showed that the difference was 1/4 oz | 7.4 ml

    Yo man I’m not going to lie, I know absolutely nothing about bartending, but your voice is EXTREMELY easy to listen to, so I’d believe anything you’d tell me

    Its almost as if the guy knew what he was talking about more than the people in his comment section. How wild.

    It's really awesome that you come up with a whole lab experiment to back your words up 👌🏼

    The question is not whether it makes a difference or not, there is more air in cloudy ice so naturally it will stay less cold and dilute faster due to its lower density. The real question is whether it makes enough difference to actually matter practically speaking, and the answer to that is also yes. It matters because it looks better, and a drink that looks better tastes better, same principle with food. Though I'm partial to metal ice balls anyways, so it's a moot point for me.

    You remind me of an old neighbour who was a really great person because of your speech, keep it up.

    I have no idea what this man is talking about, nor do I under stand drinks or how to make them, but he’s got a calming pretty voice so I watch his vids everytime they appear 😭

  • Shawn Wright

    It's not a mistake ✨it's a Masterpiece ✨

    From my limited knowledge of chemistry and physics, the cloudy ice has a less perfect crystalline structure, so there are more air pockets, therefore, less dense.

    I gave up alcohol for lent but I’m enjoying your videos. Looking forward to trying your various tips.
