For the last 2 years, working as a bar manager and tender, I have run the only successful clear ice program that I know of in Northern AZ. I have first-hand experience on the positive impact that it can make on a business and the difficulties in doing it yourself. But the end result is 100% worth it. When a nice whiskey is poured on top of a crystal clear chunk of ice, it is absolutely mesmerizing and suddenly worth more at your bar than elsewhere. Simple cocktails like the old-fashioned, Manhattan, and Negroni are instantly elevated to awesome status with better ice. Simply put, if you want the best cocktail experience possible, or if you just want a simple way to elevate your drinks, you absolutely need clear ice. It is the difference between Roses Lime Juice and real lime juice – in a time where people demand better, there is no way around it. Big cities have clear ice, and Northern Arizona deserves clear ice too!
