new, on serious eats!
Are ice balls better in cocktails than standard kitchen cubes? Does clear ice melt slower than cloudy ice? In order test out the fancy new Wintersmiths iceballer, I looked further into all of these questions.

Great article! I've been told (and I've confirmed in uncontrolled preliminary tests) that large ice spheres melt much more gracefully and may last longer when added to the drink vs. Adding the drink to the ice sphere. Have you heard this before? Do you have a scientific explanation for why this may be the case?

Add a little water to absinthe or pastis and the spirit suddenly goes milky. Why? We dig into the mystery and science.

Should you put your vermouth in the fridge? Should you try using a wine-saver system or rebottling into smaller bottles? I put a few vermouth-storage methods to the test to figure out the best way to make that bottle last.

new post on serious eats
The Bloody Mary isn't much like most classic cocktails. Today, we delve into this classic brunch drink's history and figure out whether you should really use it as a vehicle for cheap vodka. Got a hangover to cure? Read on...
