This week, The Kitchn turns blue jeans into three things: nostalgia, a thoughtfully-written essay, and most practically, a cocktail-ice-smasher. Apparently, they can do much more than clothe. In an interesting departure from their common use, the Kitchn uses old jeans to make a denim ice-smashing bag, as they refer to it, and shows us how to use the just-smashed ice. (They’re thorough.) As an added benefit, we learn about it all through an evocative, memory-filled narrative about the author’s father, pioneer of the denim bag and rogue ice-smasher.

We may not have memories to summon, but we sure have old jeans. And now, thanks to The Kitchn, we also have great cocktail ice.
