Ice Shell Instructions
These are instructions for creating an ice shell for The Aviary's iconic 'In the Rocks' cocktail, utilizing our Slingshot.
For cocktail recipes themselves, refer to the Aviary book pages 312-321.NOTES:
- The following instructions are based on the specific conditions and equipment available at our facility. You should expect that there will be a learning curve to the process. The time required to achieve ideal shell thickness (3-4mm / 1/8”-3/16") needs to be tested and adjusted according to your specific freezer settings and vodka bath vessel size - it can vary significantly.
- This process requires several hours to freeze the vodka bath. We highly recommend that you start the night before you intend to fill the ice shell with your cocktail.
- Prepare your cocktail well ahead of time and deep-chill in the freezer. Filling the ice shell with a warm cocktail base can cause the shell to crack.
