Rock

noun;
Diamonds, jewels; ice cubes in alcoholic beverages Two associations here: both involve associating small, geometric shapes with other things; in the first case, the comparison is more direct since diamonds and other jewels are actually mined from quarries. In the latter case, ice cubes are being compared to rocks because they are both small, misshapen objects. Date unknown, since both connotations have been around for ages.
 
I’ll have Sex on the Beach on the rocks, waiter.
