Since the purpose of an ice cube is to keep a drink cold, is it better for
an ice cube to have a high volume or a low volume?

I thought that the higher the volume, the longer the amount of time the ice cube does NOT melt. Which one is best? Thank you. :)

2. I'd say high volume, since that minimizes the surface area, making the cube last longer.

High surface area (lower volume) means faster cooling, but the cube does not last as long.
