44 ice cube trays for the chillest people you know

Take advantage of this golden age of novelty ice molds.

Ice Cube Molds

The kinds of molds you want in your house


As the temperature warms and the sun starts to beat down on my back, I'm thinking about ice cubes—and not the boring square ice molds, either. In this era of silicone molds—which, as Pop Sci's editor in chief has pointed out have a "low coefficient of friction and a pliable nature" that let you "create otherwise impossible-to-release shapes with ease"—there's no reason to stick to standard cube-y fare.

To that end, check out these 47 variations on the classic cube that will give your cocktail some character.
