You know what this is, dihydrogen monoxide. Used in cocktails to aide dilution and dissolution. It is liquid at room temperature but becomes solid 'ice' at 0 Celsius. Did you know ice is a mineral?

The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
The day before, combine all ingredients, except the lime juice, in a ziplock bag. Remove the air and freeze. When frozen, add the lime juice and blend for a couple seconds. #freeze #blend #makeinadvance
