To understand Iz you need some background: the Turks love this drink called Ayran or Airan, which is blended yogurt and water. They make it in a special kind of way, and as poetic as it may seem, using the Iz leaves a flower pattern on the user’s palm. The steel body of the cocktail maker is complimented with a blue intricate-pattern elastomer seal.
To use it, simply pour in the ingredients and seal the blender. A few good pumps to the top part with your palm effectively churns the contents (using spring action) and leaves a flower indent on your palm. With the help of the strainer fitted in the neck of the Iz, airan is filtered and purified from its cream. I think the Iz is a pretty versatile design and can be used to churn out some pretty heavy-duty cocktails.
Say what…would you use this to churn out some Bloody Marys?
