Under $15 Gift Idea for #1 Best Seller bar tool!

With less than two weeks until Valentine's Day, have you found the perfect gift for that special someone in your life? Or, like Christmas, do you find yourself waiting until the last minute to run out and grab something, after finding yourself stumped on what to get for a gift.  Well, I have the perfect gift that will make gift giving this Valentine's Day a breeze.  Sipping Stones, the #1 Amazon Best Seller bar tool is a must have for fine distilled spirit connoisseurs, or even those who like to have a chilled drink without it being diluted by ice.

I am so happy I found out about Sipping Stones and was given the opportunity to try them out, as I have found myself pouring out a perfectly good cocktail or spirit due to it getting diluted by the melting ice.  This is a real bummer when you sit down at the end of a long day and find the drink you prepared for yourself is diluted from the ice you added.  But, thanks to Sipping Stones, you will never have to pour out a drink that has become diluted or just isn't chilled enough.  

So, what makes Sipping Stones so great, and the #1 Amazon Best Seller bar tool?

"Sipping Stones is the aficionado's choice for chilling a drink. It eliminates a common problem for all connoisseurs of fine distilled spirits: it cools your drink perfectly without the dilution from melting ice. 

Now all your favorite drinks are able to be served the way they were intended to be, perfectly pure and precisely chilled. Sipping Stones are non-porous meaning there is no odor or taste to tarnish your drink. And unlike ice, Sipping Stones provides a smooth chill that does not overwhelm the character of your beverage. Each set of Sipping Stones comes with nine finely crafted cubes made from soapstone, a safe alternative to ice. "

How do the Sipping Stones work?

It’s easy to use! Just Rinse before first usage then place Sipping Stones in your freezer until the stones are as cold as desired. When ready, add two or three stones to your glass. Fill the glass with enough liquid to cover the stones. Let the drink sit for a few minutes to allow the stones to chill your drink. After use, simply rinse and allow the stones to dry before returning them to your freezer.  Don’t forget, Sipping Stones are not meant to cool as a drink as quickly or as much as ice. They are intended to provide a slight chill-between 8 and 15 degrees-that will protect the taste of your drink without drowning the quality.

The Sipping Stones sure did come in handy last night when we were hosting our annual Super Bowl party.  While we did have ice on hand to keep drinks chilled in the cooler, when it came to serving up distilled spirits, I made sure to drop a couple of the Sipping Stones in each glass.  I loved watching our guest's reactions to the stones in the bottle of their glasses.  Some thought I was a little loopy and dropped a rock in the glass by mistake, while didn't know what to think of it.  I was quick to explain the concept behind Sipping Stones, and then had them take a sip to see these stones helped chill their drinks, without diluting them.  Even those who opted for soda or other non-alcoholic beverages were surprised at how well these chilling stones worked, and how their drinks stayed cold and never tasted diluted (what they would have expected from a drink with ice that sat.

Prior to the Big Game, I made a point to pick up a couple more boxes of Sipping Stones off of Amazon, so that I would have enough for all the guests we were expecting.  At only $12.99 a set, in which you get 9 grey Sipping Stones, you can't go wrong for the price.  I was amazed at how well these stones worked at keeping drinks chilled, and love that I can wash them off when done with a drink and pop back in the freezer until the next time.  All I can say is bye bye ice and hello Sipping Stones!

So, stop wracking your brain in trying to find the perfect gift this Valentine's Day for your sweetie.  Instead, pick up a set of Sipping Stones to surprise them with.  Then, pour yourselves a nice distilled spirit on Valentine's Day, as you sit back and enjoy a great chilled drink and each other's company. 
Cheers!  :-)
