Winter Ice Cocktails with Detroit Ice Works and Jaz'Min Weaver
In this January workshop, we’ll appropriately be focusing on ice with our cities most modern cocktail ice-monger, Detroit Ice Works and frame’s go-to spirits master Jaz’Min Weaver for an educational evening based on cocktails of course — but also concentrating on what is the “right” ice for elevating your home cocktails. There is quite the science to the crystal clear and a rare few mixed drinks that don’t require specific ice in one form or another. Topics on task will be: how to perfectly crush ice for “tiki” or sweet cocktails, why 2″x2″ cubes are important for spirit-forward cocktails and the art of infusing ice with flavors, adding in color-changing properties. While we drink and snack, the brainchild behind Detroit Ice Works, Caroline Chung and J.T Caulton will show us the Japanese style of large ice block carving; breaking down a large block into individual-sized pieces that are then ice picked and carved into cocktail sized ice. You’ll leave armed with all slow-melting ice-info you need to stock your freezer and take home 8 Detroit Ice Works crystal clear “2×2” cubes perfect for Old Fashioneds, Manhattans, and other spirit-forward cocktails. Move over the frozen peas. You may never look at your plastic ice tray the same again.
