So I was thinking a while ago, while drinking some Small Batch Bourbon and an assortment of Scotch (I Love Scotch!!!) about those very interesting and innovative ice cube replacements that won’t melt and dilute your drink.
But the problem for any serious drinker is the simple fact that these “Cubes” are taking up precious real estate in your glass of which some sort of distilled liquor is supposed to be residing! So I’ve come up with a few new approaches to this problem.
The first approach above is as the caption states, simple and hopefully easy to mass produce if the idea takes off. However this still is not the perfect solution.
This is a more perfect solution, the “Nipple” allows the drink inside to cool faster and contact more of the glass. The thick base allows a greater thermal mass as well as the amount of “Blue Ice” is far greater then ideas like the stainless steel ice cubes noted above theoretically allowing the glass to stay cold longer.
Sure it might look a bit silly, and that’s why I’ve provided more then one variation to this, as well as I’m sure you could get some artist to come in and do something more aesthetically appealing, but I’m just an idea guy, and I think it’s a good one!
