Cocktails: sometimes they can help a bad time seem a little better. And unless you’ve been living under a rock this year (any room under there for me?), 2020 has been pretty much an eight-month-long bad time so far. Enter this silicone ice cube tray mold, which creates coronavirus shaped ice cubes, so you can slowly drink the actual virus away. Except they’re technically not ice cubes, they’re spheres with little nubs all over them like the exercise ball in the corner of my living room. I’m going to use that to get fit one day, you watch.
Designed by Misshapen and available on Amazon for $20 (affiliate link), the molds make the perfect ice cubes for your next pandemic party. And just so we’re clear, a pandemic party is making yourself a cocktail at home alone or covertly during a business Zoom meeting. Noisemaker optional.
I actually use spherical ice molds myself when I’m making drinks at home, and due to their large size and a sphere’s decreased surface area compared to a cube, they work significantly better at chilling a drink without diluting it. In this case, chicken broth and vodka. Mmmmm, great for fighting a cold too.
