Beverages » The Importance of Ice in Cocktails
What cools your cocktail is just as important as what goes in it. Should you use cubes or shaved ice, and why? Learn the answers to these questions and more from Mixologist Kevin Martin of Boston's superior cocktail spot, Eastern Standard.
Kevin Martin entered the foodservice industry with aspirations to become a classically-trained chef. He attended the Culinary Institute of America, then said "aloha" after graduation, and moved to Hawaii to further his experience in the back-of-the-house. After three years of island life, Kevin moved back to Boston and eventually found himself behind the bar at Eastern Standard. Currently holding the position of Assistant Bar Manager, Kevin loves meeting interesting people on a daily basis, and applies his culinary training even behind the bar, when crafting Eastern Standard's artisan cocktails.
