You’ll Want to Open a Bottle When You See the Ice Shot Mold

Remember when your parents asked people round for dinner, how they would always use the fancy plates? In a funny kind of way, we do the same thing with shot glasses. Instead of using a plain set, we bring out the nerdy test tubes or some balancing vessels. These sets can be fun — but they are no match for ice. With the Ice Shot Mold, you can create perfect frozen-water glasses that will last through any party. Your friends will love them, and so will your chilled tastebuds.

– Super easy to use, simply fill with water and freeze

– Ice comes out strong and smooth every time, and you can add infusions

– Supplied ice grip helps you hold the cold, slippery glasses with ease

The Ice Shot

Some people salivate at the thought of tasting lime, salt and 38% agave-based alcohol. But most of us drink shots for the occasion, and to reach that perfect state of party zen. You know, the frame of mind when any comment seems like the funniest thing ever.

When fun is the objective, ice shots are definitely recommended. The glasses you get from the Ice Shot Mold look like tiny ice sculptures. Furthermore, you can infuse the ice to create unique frozen cocktails.

Fill and Freeze

Making a tiny cup from ice sounds tricky, but it’s surprisingly easy with the Ice Shot.

Each mold has space for three glasses. You simply fill the shapes with water or any other consumable liquid, as you would a tray of ice cubes. Your freezer then does all the hard work. After a few hours, your glasses should be ready to go. The mold has removable grips, which allow you to free each glass with ease.

You can leave the glasses in their grips all night, should you wish. This makes them easier to hold, and it stops your fingers from melting the ice. Alternatively, you can pop out the ice and refill the molds to make another batch.

The glasses have relatively thick sides, so they should last for several drinks. Additionally, the surface is satisfyingly smooth and largely free from imperfections. We have seen molds that produce ice that looks even better — but none with this level of usability.

Party Time

Quite apart from impressing your friends, ice glasses can actually improve your shot-drinking experience.

For starters, they last much longer than ice cubes. This means less meltwater, so the strong stuff should stay strong. And you can even pop them back in the freezer between drinks to re-harden the ice.

In addition, these glasses are great for making creative cocktails. You could pour vodka into a frozen cranberry juice glass, or put Kahlua in your frozen coffee container. Prefer something more traditional? Enjoy whiskey in the rocks.

“Here’s the only shot glass you’ll ever need: introducing the Ice Shot by Raging Mammoth. Keeping alcohol in the freezer disturbs flavor and makes it syrupy. So we took our love of chilled drinks and re-imagined cubes as a glass.” — Raging Mammoth on Kickstarter

What We ❤️

A unique addition to any party, and one that requires minimal preparation. Folks who enjoy cocktails will also love the infusion possibilities.

Future Designs

These molds are pretty large, considering you only get three glasses from each. Trimming away the unnecessary bulk would be a definite upgrade.
