Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is 2 Inch Ice Cubes Molds by Home Complete. I know this is a simple little item but I am excited about it. It all stated when Bryan Black of ITS Tactical talked me into going to a cool Farm to Fork Place in Fort Worth called “The Bird Cafe”. The food is good but the bar is what is amazing.
These bartenders are fricken chemists who do their work in adult beverages. Anyway Bryan is like you have to get one of the “Old Fashioneds”. I was like not really a fan, he insisted saying, look I am buying if you don’t like it order something else.
This is what I ended up with and I go back to the Bird Cafe every time we are downtown just to have one. They don’t muddle fruit they use a combination of cherry branding, house made orange liquor, and a combination of three different bitters. For bourbon they use Knobb Creek Rye. Purists will scoff at this, but purists I don’t like your version, so suck on an orange peal!
Anyway I was like, I should try to cobble that together, still looking for the right brandy and can’t find some of the bitters, so for now using basic bitters but mine are damn tasty!
What I needed though was that massive 2 inch ice cube that didn’t melt fast and water down the drink. So I went on Amazon and found the 2 Inch Ice Cubes Molds by Home Complete. I didn’t do a ton of research on this product, I am not sure how one really could screw up silicone ice tray but these were a good price, had a solid B on fakespot with 1300 plus reviews and 4.5 stars so that seemed good enough.
Man these things are great and not just for cocktails frankly any drink you want to chill but not water down. Because they are silicone it is easy to push the cubes out. I make up 16 at a time, pop them out and put them in a ziplock bag, refill and repeat. Since they are so big you don’t use them up very fast.
There is another use for these guys too, stocks. You know like chicken, beef, bone, etc. stock. We had been using something like a silicone muffin mold for that but this is a LOT better, because it was designed for the purpose of making ice, translation you spill less.
I ordered the two pack for 9.99 but if you want a single one you can get that too. Also if you want more for any reason, like they are bad ass gifts for instance they offer a discount. Right in the item description you will see the following
Get 5% OFF When You Buy 2 (Coupon Code B3OR3JEH) -Get 10% OFF When You Buy 3 Or More (Coupon Code QHE8TC8V)
I didn’t notice that when I ordered mine but frankly again 16 of these cubes go a long way, still I will likely order some more, again what a great gift for any friends or family that enjoy making a good drink now and again.
So check out the 2 Inch Ice Cubes Molds by Home Complete and enjoy your next drink adult or otherwise without it being watered down, and hey get some of that stock put up as well.

P.S. – So were is the recipe for the drink? Sorry guys and gals the above description is all I am giving until I get it down as good as they do it at the Bird Cafe, if you want one until then and you are near Fort Worth, go down and get one, you won’t regret it!
