Easy Large Sized Whiskey Ice Cubes

Picture of Easy Large Sized Whiskey Ice Cubes
Having enjoyed a good whiskey for a while I recently discovered the joy of large sized ice cubes in a good whiskey! They melt much more slowly leaving but a hint of water in your whiskey.  After visiting a friend with a fancy large size ice cube maker I wondered what it would take to make a sweet giant icecube.

And this is the solution... a small sized solo cup!

The l on the inside of the cup is a good fill marker for water.

Running a bit of hot water on the end of the cup helps release the cube from the cup. Then just pop it in your glass and enjoy.

If you boil your water before filling your solo cup you'll have crystal clear ice.
