1. Crushed Ice -
It is tiny pieces of ice made by crushing ice cubes. It can be used for DIY snow cones. Crushed ice is also great for a number of classic cocktails like Moscow mules, mint juleps, and mai tais. Or toss it into the blender when making smoothies and frozen drinks.
2. Sphere -
Spherical ice molds contain a low surface area, which means they also have a reduced melting rate. So the next time you order your scotch, tell the bartender to add a big sphere of ice instead of cubes and feel the difference.
3. Regular Cubes -
Cocktails that take a handful of ice cubes like a gin and tonic, a Tom Collins, and are perfect contenders for a few regular cubes. They're also, of course, great in just about any cold drink, from iced coffee to lemonade.
4. King Cubes -
These can be used similarly to sphere ice cubes, in pitchers and punches, as they melt slowly. They are also the ideal cube for stirred cocktails where you want a little ice but don't want to water it down too much.
5. Half Moons -
These are your everyday ice cubes, grabbed from your freezer's ice machine in a hurry. Drop them into your water glass or into iced tea or iced coffee. They're also good when used in the shaker when you're shaking your cocktail and don't need anything too special.
Here are all the reasons you should ditch your old and possible broken plastic or metal ice tray and replace it with trendy ice mold products. Enjoy!
