STONE COLD

Congratulations!  You've made it to the end of a post-holiday week, which can often feel as excruciatingly painful as a root canal or hideously long wedding ceremony.  So why not break out the good stuff and toast to a healthy, calm weekend of peace and quiet.  I don't know about you, but I like my cocktails chilled from first pour to last sip, and these whiskey stones do just the trick!  Cut from soapstone, these great little cubes have thermal properties that will keep your beverages chilled, won't scratch your glasses and will never dilute whatever fills your flute!  Best of all, they're nonporous which means they won't impart any flavors or odors to your drink. Simply freeze for at least an hour, let stand for five minutes then drop into your cocktail.  Hand wash after each use, re-freeze and get ready to serve your next cocktail in a breeze!
