“Good, fresh ice made with boiled, filtered water will make a noticeable difference in the taste of your cocktails. As Eric Felten advises, 'Use ice untainted by municipal chlorine and free from memories of trout caught last summer.'”

this seems silly...a recipe for ice...but you are absolutely making a very good point. why go to the expense of making a drink and then adding flavors you don't intend with the ice? a good reminder. thank you.

Had a glass of ice water with lemon the other night with dinner and didn't finish it until after dinner, long after the ice had melted. It wasn't particularly nasty, but I found when I'm in Naples the water just doesn't taste as good as when I'm home in Wisconsin. Did not enjoy the aftertaste at all, and now I'm sold on using these ice cubes for drinks. (For other purposes, I'll continue to use the ice-maker ice, however). On this occasion I used this "recipe" to make "Mint Ice Cubes," also from this site. Nice, fresh, clean taste. Love it.

Seriously. also try distilled water. I keep food waste in my freezer (coffee grinds, onion peels, etc) and ice cubes left indefinitely taste the funk.
