Need crushed ice for my Kentucky Derby party's mint juleps
Yes I've seen the tutorial on crushed ice, but it will take all week to crush the amount of ice I need for my delicious mint juleps! Does anyone know of a place in San Francisco or close by that sells crushed ice?
While this is not a direct answer to your question, I ended up just buying a Waring IC70 ice crusher for drinks. (Which, uh, I'm sure you can get in San Francisco, or close by.)
I've never seen bagged crushed ice. I think marketing it would be problematic as it tends to clump up.
Try calling SF Ice Company .......Tel: 415.671.1055
Ask about something called snow ice ...... it's crushed ice - much smaller than ice cubes ...... often used for seafood display/oyster bars...... not sure if it's the right shape / size for mint juleps or not but I suspect they can help you! But if you can crush your own that's even better.
