Ice is just ice, right? Well, actually, not quite. These days, that standard ice cube tray is just the beginning.

Here are the five basic types of ice and what they are best used for.
3. King Cubes
4. Regular Cubes
5. Half Moons
These are your everyday ice cubes — grabbed from your freezer’s ice machine in a hurry. Drop them into your water glass or into iced tea or iced coffee. They’re also good used in the shaker when you’re shaking your cocktail and don’t need anything too special.
