Achieving that ice slurry on a shaken cocktail

Pei | | Dec 25, 2010 05:07 PM

I've been wondering for awhile now, is there a name for the slurry of finely chipped ice that floats on the top of some cocktails (typically served in a martini glass)? I would love to know the technique involved in creating this effect, but without knowing what to call it, I'm coming up blank. I assume it's a combination of the shape of ice cubes, shaking technique, and length of time spent shaking the cocktail.

That little slurry of ice really elevates something like an Aviation or a simple daiquiri, so any points in the right direction are greatly appreciated! TIA
