Sweet 3D Milled Ice Cube Sculptures

3D on the Rocks as they are called, are 3D milled ice cube sculptures designed to go right into your drink. Ice cubes in your drink are good, they’re useful, but these sculptures are way better, even if they might not be as practical as the simple ice cube. The sculpture ice cubes look superb, and that alone is enough to sway my (shallow) opinion in their favor.
