The Big Chill

You may have noticed a trend in cocktail service in upscale bars and clubs lately – very large, uniquely shaped ice cubes. From colossal cubes to giant spheres, ice cube design is breaking the mold.

If you’re someone who loves to throw cocktail parties, picking up this trend is a fun way to add a fun twist to the traditional cocktail. Before you think this is cocktail fad of only form over function, consider this – large ice cubes melt much slower than their tiny counterparts, so they’re perfect for glasses of whiskey or vodka.

To make the specialty chillers, simply use distilled water and a mold or tray of your liking. There are several options available online, like at www.momastore.org.
