A totally unique way
to make drinks at home

Cocktail infused ice cubes from Uncommon Goods

Three words. Infused. Ice. Cubes.

This super unique take on making drinks lets you get all the flavor of a sophisticated cocktail without having to have all of the ingredients on hand.

Just freeze, pop out of the package, drop into your favorite liquor or mixer, and sip in style. Each variety is crafted to complement cocktails with artisanal pairings of botanicals and flavors, like blood orange with a ginger Old Fashioned. Shake them up with liquor and mixers for a quick cocktail, or let liquor slowly dissolve the cubes for a refined drink on the rocks.
