There's something about crushed ice that seems to say, "We're in a fancy bar right now, aren't we?" Turn your kitchen table into one such watering hole with this low-tech, yet effective tool. Simply slip cubes of ice inside the canvas bag, fold over the flap, and get to smashing. The lightweight mallet's a breeze to grip, and the absorbent sack soaks up excess water, so your ice comes out pebbly and dry as can be. Pair it with a bracing mint julep—silver cup and all—for the full effect. Made in China.
