When it comes to drinking there are a lot of rules that we all need to abide by. If you owe somebody money, don’t pay them back sober, wait until the very end of the night and shave a few bucks off of your total (then act confused when you’re asked about it). If you ever get yourself into a pinch and think somebody is about to punch you in the bar, the solution is always to buy them a drink. If a woman accepts an offer for you to buy her a drink, that doesn’t mean she likes you (and will probably go back to a table with her boyfriend). If you make the mistake of ordering a female typical drink (cosmopolitan) in front of your buddies, you can and should expect to be known as the “girly drink man”. Hangovers are not a sign of weakness, they’re a sign of an awesome time (if drinking was easy, everybody would do it). The last rule of drinking is that if you get any bottle of hard liquor that is worth over $40 a bottle, you’re required to drink it on the rocks.
The problem with drinking good hard liquor on the rocks is that you will likely water it down as most ice cubes are built to quickly dissolve. Nobody wants their $200 bottle Johnnie Walker to get watered down by ice so what could be the solution? We found a cheap and awesome solution called the Orbie Silicone Ice Mold. The idea is simple: get two silicone pieces that form a perfect sphere that can be broken apart once the ice freezes. Throw the giant sphere into a rocks glass, pour in the liquor and enjoy it cold with ice that is made to not melt fast. It also looks pretty friggin’ cool. We actually were able to give this one a try and you can see the finished product below. Click here for image source and where to buy.
