Keep your cool, because we've found the hottest ice cube trays and ice machines to beat the summer heat.
One of the easiest ways to cool down this summer is with an ice-cold drink. While a cup of good ole' H2O and ice cubes from the fridge are adequate, sometimes it's nice to elevate your beverage of choice. Picture it: A day by the pool or afternoon at the beach or even a quintessential backyard BBQ or garden party can be made even better with next-level ice.
One of our favorite ways to upgrade our everyday drinks from plain to TikTok-worthy this summer is with fancy ice. If you think all ice is equal, think again. Large ice spheres are great for slowly chilling a beverage while not watering it down, while little spheres make refreshing drinks all the more delicious. Ice machines can also be a big help during the summer months when you need lots more ice than your fridge can churn out.
Whether you want to take photos of your fancy ice drinks for the 'gram or need more ice to keep cool in the summer heat, we've got you covered. Below, shop the best ice trays, ice molds, frozen drink makers, ice machines and more for the best cold drinks this summer.
