Some purists make ice cubes from the actual bottled water they consume, so as not to compromise their mineral water, Scotch or other fine beverage. Others make “better” ice cubes from gallon-size spring water. If you use generic tap water, you can improve the flavor just by letting the tray sit on the counter for five minutes prior to freezing. This way, the scent of the chlorine gas used by municipalities to purify the water supply can evaporate. Better yet, put a filter on your tap!
