Make Ice Cubes Shaped Like the Moon

When it comes to glasses of scotch, the shape of your ice cubes makes a big difference. Most bartenders agree that large spheres are the best shape for whiskey drinkers who don't want too much dilution in their drink because they're slower to melt. But with exciting ice shapes like sharks to grenades on the market, a plain sphere might seem a little bland. Luckily, fun-loving scotch drinkers don't have to sacrifice fun for practicality. These special molds toe the line between whimsy and function by resembling the moon while still retaining the optimal sphere shape. 

To make a special ice moon, the user just needs to pour water into the mold through the small hole in the top and pop it in the freezer. Once the water freezes, the drinker can unscrew the top and take out their delightfully shaped ice cube (is it still called an ice cube if it's not cube shaped?).

The mold is made out of silicone and dishwasher safe. Arguably, you can fill it with juice and place a popsicle stick in the top hole for a moon pop—perfect for your next space-themed shindig.
