I have a Doctor Who ice cube tray that makes three TARDISes and three Daleks. You can also use it as a chocolate mould; it's made out of silicone. It was a Christmas present from my sister-in-law.


Are they bigger on the inside? ;)

Ah, okay. First thing that comes to mind, then, is ouzo.

Pastis does as well.  

Interesting fact that I just learned: the louche is also called the ouzo effect.

And the result is: It worked! In fact it worked immediately, which surprised me since I was expecting to add a lot of water before I saw any change.

I found an article about the chemistry of it. Favorite quote: "your cocktail is made of nanotechnology."
