Last night, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Josh and I whipped up a new cocktail: Moscow Mules with an Irish twist. I’m smitten with ginger beer lately, so any excuse to drink a mule, and I’m hooked. To make it a bit more “Irish,” we subbed out vodka for whiskey. The lime was perfect to marry the two together.
Since the weather is starting to warm up, we love to enjoy our drinks out on the porch. It’s the perfect excuse to enjoy the weather and talk about our day. It does, however, lead to faster melting ice cubes and quickly watered down drinks. I prefer my cocktails to taste the same as when I first made them, so lately I’ve been on the look out for a good ice cube alternative.
Enter Balls of Steel. BOS are whiskey and spirit chillers that cool down your libations without watering them down. I can’t recommend this brand enough. Besides having a sense of humor with their brand, they also are huge proponents of giving back. Proceeds of all profits go directly to financial funding for testicular cancer support (balls? get it?), plus they get their hands dirty through community and charity events.
So basically, you get to feel good about drinking chilled whiskey. :)
