Qualifier: This is for city apartment dwellers or people who have ice trays that you have to fill manually. Those of you with the automatic ice cube makers you can move on to the next post.
I hate shattered ice cubes. They get on my floor and make water everywhere.
Quick tip: If you want clear solid cubes of ice. Use your hottest tap water when you fill your tray.
Then you have nice cubes for your gin n’ juice.
Post-post script: FYI You should all know that I did an experiment with boiling water, hot tap water, room temp tap, and cold tap. I came up with hot tap water because it was more or less the same result as boiling water. And less time consuming. One commenter said something about the clarity of the hot tap water (it comes through the hot water heater). That would be a case by case determination, I would imagine. If yours isn’t clear, then boil it.
