Yesterday, I posted about outrageously priced, individually packaged luxury ice spheres for the wealthy to use to chill their $300 imported vodka.
After seeing that, a reader emailed me about these ice molds that let you make your own expensive looking ice balls – complete with grooves to give them that “hand-carved” look – without having to spend a fortune.
The molds make a pair of ice balls (you can only refer to them as “spheres” when you pay $8 bucks apiece for them), that are 2-inches in diameter and resemble the hand-made balls carved by apprentice bartenders in Japan.
Apparently they don’t melt as fast as traditional cubes, and will keep your drink colder, longer, without watering it down as much. Plus they look cool in a martini. And now you can have a bucketful of ice balls for your next party without having to mortgage your house.
