Easy Large Sized Whiskey Ice Cubes





Introduction: 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!

Step 1: Solo Cups

get a few small sized, 8 ounce cups.

Step 2: Fill to the L

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

Step 3: Freeze It!

Yep just put it in the freezer... right next to your frozen chicken nuggets!

Step 4: Enjoy

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.

    Whoa. Genius. Red solo cup.
