Lewis Bag

standard January 8, 2015 Leave a response

A Lewis Bag is a canvas bag used to crush ice. If you want to go old school in crushing ice for Mint Juleps and other Smashes, a Lewis Bag and a wooden mallet is the ticket. The canvas used in the Lewis Bag’s construction absorbs the water created during the crushing process to produce a drier ice for creating cocktails.
