Welcome to Clear Ice Week!! a chilly celebration that brings together the coolest crafters in the world of mixology! We’ve chosen to mark this frosty occasion by interviewing four incredible artisans, each with a unique story to tell. Let the ice puns begin as we chip into the world of clear ice with our fantastic guests.
Meet Robin better known on social media as @Thehousemouse, a skilled cocktail maker whose mixology expertise meets a passion for storytelling. Inspired by a trip to Japan, where she experienced the beauty of transparent ice, Robin started on her clear ice journey. Her favorite craft drink? The "Cardboard Plane" is a delightful concoction that includes Carefree Bourbon, Cointreau, Amaro Meletti, lemon juice, and grape juice.
