Some of you might use filtered water, flavored water or even coffee, but do you ever think about the shape of your ice cubes? Why stick with boring squares when you can get cats, dogs, bunnies, stars, apples, jewels, and more. These cat and dog ice cube trays are $6.99 a piece or $12.99 for both. They'd make cute cubes for your summer punch, or alternatively, use the molds to make your own chocolates! They're guaranteed to be purr-fect!

I've never been much of a gamer, but I do remember wasting away a few hours playing Tetris on my sister's original Nintendo gameboy. When geeksugar forwarded me these Tetris themed ice cubes I was instantly brought back to my childhood. At first I thought, "Fun!" but then I started thinking about it: Do I really want tetris shaped ice cubes floating around in my iced teas? Maybe not. Still these may be perfect for your geeky chic friend. What do you think? Tetris ice cubes: Love it or hate it?
With summer on its way I thought I'd share with you one of my most simple tips. If you love a glass of iced coffee, but hate when it gets all watery, then do yourself a favor and make coffee ice cubes. By making coffee ice cubes you'll ensure your iced coffee won't get diluted and you'll have a good use for this morning's leftover coffee. Just use a clean ice tray, fill with coffee and freeze. Once frozen, remove cubes from the ice trays and put into a large ziploc style freezerbag (this helps protect it from that nasty freezer smell/taste). Use them instead of regular ice cubes and ta da! No more watery iced coffee for you!
Normally I'm not a huge fan of odd shaped ice cubes (my mom loves stick ice cubes that she can slide into her bottles easily), but when geeksugar showed me these shot glass ice cubes, I went running to the product website to purchase them with visions of a vodka tasting party floating in my head. I loved them, but then I wondered, hmm perhaps they are not the most practical of glasses considering that they will melt and I mean taking shots is so college and I graduated 3 years ago...nah, I still love them. How about you, shot glass ice cubes: love it or hate it?
