Keep Chill and Stay Cool! 4 Unique Summer Ice Trays

Class up your next party with classy ice cubes. No kidding: these trays will have your guests ooooohing and aaaaahhhing over more than just the mixed drinks you’re serving.

For the gentlemen who enjoy their whiskey (or Dr. Pepper, or root beer) on the rocks, the Whiskey Barrel Ice Mold will do just the trick. Because it’s just one piece of ice, it won’t dilute the drink as quickly as multiple cubes or crushed ice would.

 Whiskey Barrel Ice Mold

Fun fact: “whiskey” and “whisky” are both correct spellings!

For the ladies drinking Watermelon juleps (see recipe below) or sparkling strawberry water, Cool Jewels ice will hit the spot.

Cool Jewels Ice Cube Tray

Dishwasher-safe tray makes six ice gems.

For a great Watermelon julep, you’ll need: 1/4 ripe watermelon, 1/2 oz. simple syrup, 3 sprigs of rosemary, and 2 oz. Grey Goose vodka. Directions: smash watermelon till it turns to juice. Pick out seeds. Muddle 2 sprigs of rosemary with syrup. Add 3 oz. juice and 2 oz. vodka and shake with ice. Strain, and garnish with sprig of rosemary.

For the punk rock party (maybe your evening’s theme, or maybe you’re just making your teenager’s bash that much cooler), stick with the Spiked! Ice Tray. Each silicone rubber tray makes 14 spikes, so stock up on trays before your party to keep the spikes coming!

Also great for vampire-themed parties!

Finally, for the guest who can’t decide between the above options, shower them (not literally) with Ice Spheres instead of cubes! Believe it or not, spheres of ice are more efficient than cubes. Spherical ice takes longer to melt and keeps your beverage colder for longer periods of time, so drink up without worrying about getting watered down.

Ice Cube Sphere

The Small tray makes three spheres; the Large makes ten.

If you can’t decide, consider trying all these great ice shapes by mixing them together in your ice bucket. Your guests will be charmed when they discover jewel ice, spikes, or spheres in their drinks, whatever those drinks may be.
