I got these given to me for Christmas from the wifey and thought WTF? I drink my Whiskey on the Rocks but Ice, I like melted ice.. then I had a great idea? Ever had that moment when you ve let your absinthe sit for a while and it goes warm? Welll just stick these in for a few minutes, extract and voila you have your cold drink back!

I do the same with a standard teaspoon. Just put it in the freezer when you prepare the absinthe and any time the temp seems too high, just drop it in.

Call me a Philistine, but I just use ice in absinthe, too.

I use them, periodically, with whiskey and scotch.  I generally do not add water to mine, so these are fine for my purposes.  if you're a big fan of adding a few drops/a splash to your beverage though, these serve less utility. 

 

As to adding these to absinthe, I've seldom had a glass sit long enough to get warm, ;) .  Then again, I DO live in Minnesota...

94F here today... and with ice it just dilutes a little more so I prefer these stones as it chills without the added dilution.

Makes perfect sense to me.  :)
