Bartender top tips
The more ice you have in a built drink, the better. It’s the first basic rule of thermal dynamics… Say, if you have 2 ice cubes in a glass then add room temperature liquids (e.g. gin and tonic), the ice will quickly melt, adding 50-60mls of water to your ‘G&T’. Start again, add loads of good quality cubed ice to your large Burgundy red wine glass, then add chilled liquids and you will find the ice won’t melt as much. Your drink shall now stay much colder for longer and have less dilution – providing a much tastier drinking experience for longer.
