Hangover Thursday: Whiskey Stones

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? Despite Thursday being our day to talk about all things alcohol, I’ve been drinking on random days lately. I only had a few beers last night, so I’m relatively hangover free. Today we’re going to be talking about soapstone. I realize that soapstone probably sounds like a strange topic for Hangover Thursday but keep reading and all will make sense.

Let’s say you enjoy a glass of whiskey. Maybe you want it chilled but don’t want to drop ice cubes into your cup because eventually those cubes are going to melt and water down your drink. Whiskey Stones were made for just that purpose. These squares of soapstone can be frozen and used to chill the whiskey without adding any additional water.

That’s all well and good, but you ever have a piece of ice slide from the bottom of your drink and hit you in the mouth? That’s annoying, now imagine it with rocks. So someone out there thought that instead of putting soapstone into our glass, why not make the glass out of soapstone? The only problem with the ones pictured above is that they are only shot glasses and not highball glasses.

I have to admit most of my whiskey drinking is done in shot form, but when I do actually sit down with a glass I’m a heathen and usually drop an ice cube and splash of water in the glass. That’s how I normally do it, how do you take yours?
