9 Ice Trays That Make Drinking Better
Liberate your ice from the shackles of cubism! (And have some fun at parties.)
By Jud Chandler
Here’s a wild guess: The only time you think about ice trays is when you want to drink a cocktail or soothe your lumbago, and you realize you forgot to fill them up last time you emptied them. That amount of ice cube-tray consideration is just fine — standard ice cubes do a fine job of, well, being ice cubes.
But if you like to entertain guests or just want to spice up your lonely existence, funky-shaped ice cubes are an easy way to do it. They can actually say a lot about you. For instance …
SPACE INVADERS ICE TRAY ($8)
What the cubes say about you: You’re at least in your mid 30s … and may or may not have ever kissed a girl. (We’re kidding — these are actually awesome.)
LEGO MINIFIGURE ICE TRAY ($8)
What the cubes say about you: You have a fanciful imagination and enjoy using your hands to create things. Or you like to pretend you’re a gigantic monster dining on tiny, crunchy people.
BONE CHILLERS ICE TRAY ($7)
What the cubes say about you: You know how to host a parrrrrrrty.
GIN and TITONIC ICE TRAY ($7)
What the cubes say about you: You’ve found the perfect complement to your Hindenburg party balloons and Chernobyl grill.
