Serving On A Cool Tray

Cool Tray

Serving chilled food on a hot tray isn’t the best way to keep the party going. Unless of course, it’s an eat-as-fast-as-you-can party. But for the rest of us, when it’s time to slow down and chill with some chilled food the Cool Tray can come in handy. The serving platter comes with an inner compartment meant to be filled with water. Pop it in the freezer and keep the snacks and spread cool without diluting the fun.

Get Back To Basics With A Manual Ice Shaver

Back to Basics Manual Ice Shaver Model SIT10821

It’s hot. Time to cool down. How? By eating ice, of course. Shaved ice. While just chewing ice cubes is certainly an option, the Back to Basics Manual Ice Shaver Model SIT10821 might offer a bit more flavor. It may be hot, and the heat may affect the brain, but shaved ice takes flavor on a bit more easily than just pouring syrup over a cube. Although, some day sugar-free, carb-free, no-calorie ice may become a fad diet. Either way, stay cool and get ahead of the trend with your own ice shaver.

Mood Lighting For Your Drink

Litecubes RAINBOW Light up LED Ice Cubes

Drinks go down better in the dark; it’s why the best bars are dark, of course. But mood lighting can at times be too moody, to the point nobody can see anything. While depending on your company this may or may not be a good thing, it never hurts to be able to see what you’re getting into.

Litecubes RAINBOW Light up LED Ice Cubes come as a set of a dozen and add a splash of frozen color to any drink. The one-inch square cubes are made of FDA-approved cast acrylic that is packed with coolant gel. When activated, they phase through eight different color cycles. Reusable, all that is needed to brighten up your night is to take ‘em out of the freezer and then drop ‘em in the drink. Also available in Golf Ball Form.

Ice In Wine, No; Wine In Ice, Yes

Exaco Nice Ice Cooler

It may be a faux pas to put ice in wine, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with putting wine in ice. Especially when it looks this good. A big chunk of ice is always impressive, and sticking a bottle of wine through the center of it makes it even more so. That’s exactly what the Exaco Nice Ice Cooler can do for you. Part mold, part centerpiece, the contraption creates a tall cylindrical ice sculpture with room for a bottle of wine. Melting into the included base over a period of 6-hours (in a 70-degree environment), the novel wine cooler should (one would hope) last a lot longer than that bottle of wine it is meant to chill.

Apparently, there is something called the World Cup that is a big deal. I guess it’s a soccer tournament or something. Whether or not you are familiar this Bizarro World game of ‘football’ doesn’t matter, because now you can take home a piece of the action (at least until it melts away).
