Clear Ice Cubes In a Small Freezer – Is it possible?

I’ve been asked a lot about how I make my Clear Ice – it not only looks good, but melts slower than regular ice in the cocktails. Although having a big freezer with lots of space to make big ice blocks is great, today I’ll show you how you can make Clear Ice cubes at home by turning any plastic container into your own, homemade cooler – this way you can make great Clear Ice even if you have limited freezer space! I’ll also be showing you how you can carve the ice into any shape you want, using regular tools you might even have at home, so you are getting two Clear Ice hacks in one video. With that said, pull up a chair, and get your arts & crafts skills ready for today’s episode of Cocktail Time. Cheers!

Here is a simple guide on how to make clear ice at home:

  1. Start by filling a plastic container (such as a Tupperware container) with distilled water. You can also use filtered or spring water if distilled water is not available.

  2. Place the container in the freezer, but do not cover it.

  3. Let the water freeze for several hours, or until the top inch or so is frozen.

  4. Once the top inch is frozen, remove the container from the freezer and gently pour off the cloudy water from the top.

  5. Return the container to the freezer, and repeat the process of freezing and removing the cloudy water until the ice is clear.

  6. Once the ice is clear, you can remove it from the container and store it in a plastic bag or another container in the freezer.

Note: Clear ice will melt slower than cloudy ice, so it will last longer in your drinks and will not dilute your drink as quickly.

Also, You could try using a silicone ice tray or a metal container with a small hole in the bottom to let the impurities escape.
