Whether you’re mixing up a favorite cocktail or even enjoying a refreshing, summer mocktail, there are many ways to spruce up those summer drinks. One simple idea is to step up your ice game. Ice in any shape other than the form your freezer kicks out is exciting and a surprisingly simple step you can take at home to liven up your drinks.

Tovolo and The Local Palate partnered to bring you these simple ideas for taking your summer drinks to the next level. Impress your guests, jazz up your afternoon cocktail, and start experimenting.

SPHERE MOLDS

This slow melting sphere helps bring out the full flavor in your whiskey, scotch, or bourbon. Don’t like it on the rocks? Try one of our favorite cocktails, Never Love a Wild Thing.

KING CUBE

An oversized ice cube – fun to use in your fresh juices or any cocktail. Another cool idea? Try freezing your broth or stocks in these molds.

HIGHBALL

An extra-large mold perfect for those highball favorites. Try one of our highball favorites like The Benny Hill and a Shrub Cocktail.
