It’s the science of mixology. Yes, there is an art to creating fine cocktails. Choosing the optimal spirits is important, as is mixing the right recipes and serving them up in an appropriate glass. But to truly add the finishing touch, the ice cubes are an integral part of the recipe, too. Don’t detract from your finely crafted cocktail by using the wrong ice cubes in your drink. Depending on the beverage, square cubes may be called for, while for others a single, round ice cube is the best enhancement.

Adoric Ice Cube Trays Silicone Set of 2, Sphere Ice Ball Maker with Lid and Large Square Ice Cube Molds for Whiskey, Reusable and BPA Free (Ice Cube Trays Silicone Set of 2)

Flexible and durable

Easy to fill and easy to twist or push from the bottom to remove from the tray. Adoric

The Adoric silicone ice cube tray gives you what you need to create the perfect square or spherical ice cubes to adorn your cocktails. Each tray produces six precise cubes. The spherical cubes are 1.8 inches in diameter. Why do we need these? Spherical cubes will melt more slowly and have less surface area touching your drink, so you can enjoy its optimum taste for longer without it diluting from ice melt. The square cubes are 2 inches in size and are ideal for your Old Fashioned, Scotch whiskey, bourbon, or blended whiskey. Both trays are made of durable silicone and are BPA-free. Can also be used to make popsicle treats for kids, freeze sauces, baby food, or create a special liqueur for a surprise treat for your guests.
