Break Time: Ice, Ice & Ice

The polar vortex has finally cleared, and today it’s a balmy 26° F. (Seriously though, after five straight days of severe sub-zero temperatures, 26° feels downright tropical.) Despite the “heat wave,” there are still ten weeks until spring, so I picked out a few articles that champion that slippery winter staple: ice.

It’s easy to understand why many people thought Tony Travouillon’s Antarctic images were frozen waves. The curved shape and brilliant blue color is a perfect match to the breaks at Oahu. Truth is, they are a very rare sight, coming from layer upon layer of quickly compressed ice.

When you think of icebergs, colossal white and blue chunks spring to mind. However, some Antarctic ’bergs are striped with thick veins of yellow, green, and brown.

I like my drinks on the rocks, but I never knew there was so much science behind the cubes in my glass. It turns out that the key to a perfect cocktail starts with ice.
