Névé offers an assortment of ice shapes to accommodate your needs. While we specialize in the production of ice for cocktails, our cubes can also be used to maintain the wonderful flavor of any drink you deem worthy: iced-tea, lemonade, punch, ice café, soft drinks, etc.
This long cube is perfect for tall glasses, lowering the temperature of your drink without
affecting the carbonation with excessive water. Most bartenders use this ice for
Moscow mules, cuba libre, cape cod, or one of the most popular cocktail of old, the Gin "&" Tonic
Mixologist crack this cube with a bar spoon to create small and large cubes to make their stirred drinks with, knowing that the large pieces will give them the chill that they need, and the small pieces will give them the dillution they need. This cube is approx 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches, by 4 inches.
So which drinks should be stirred? The rule of thumb is all drinks that contain only spirits. Example: Manhattan, Martini, Negroni, Little Italy, Old Fashion

These cubes are created without corners. Why you may ask?
The weakest part of a cube is it's corner. Therefore if you shake a cocktail with
cubes that have corners, they will explode in your
cocktail shaker causing heightened dilution (basicly more water in your drink) and who
really wants more water in there drink?
Cube size: approx 1.5 inches, by 2 inches, by 1.5 inches no corners.
So which drinks should be shaken? The rule of thumb is all drinks that contain citrus. Example: Gimlet, Sours, Daiquiri's, Daisy's, etc.
The problem with crushed ice is that you have to put heat into the ice to crush it.
You either shave it (warm sharp blade on ice) or smash/crush it (usually a machine
or sometimes done by hand) but either way it will be a watery mush when you're ready to use it in
Not with our ice, our Nugget ice is specifically frozen in it's nugget shape to minimize the dilution upon contact with your drink.
