Ice keeps things cool and helps a drink stay smooth, but it also contributes one major pain point—it melts. Due to the smaller surface area, the cubes from a standard tray will melt faster and water down your perfectly made cocktail quicker. For anyone on your list who hates a watered-down beverage, there's a king-size solution: This king cube tray allows you to make larger-than-life ice cubes that melt slower and look cooler in your favorite cocktail. A king cube ice tray is a must-have for any cocktail enthusiast in your life. And if you know someone who appreciates a multifunctional gift, you can use the ice tray to freeze broth, juice, desserts, or even baby food.
