Ice Ball Molds Make Great Cocktails & Decorations!

Did you know you could get sphere shaped ice ball molds online? They are great for having with your cocktail, but they also make pretty cool decorations!

Use and ice ball in your drink to keep it chilled without diluting it as much as crushed ice. You see, crushed ice melts extremely fast. This is due to all of it’s surface are that come into contact with the beverage’s liquid. The ice transfers its coldness to the liquid, and in the process it melts. These ice ball molds make a large sphere that has less surface area but more volume. Therefore they dont melt as fast. You can actually have multiple cocktails with the same chunk of ice.

As for decorations, you can use water, or different types of juices, coffee, tea, etc in the ice ball maker so you can have various colors and effects. Float them in a punchbowl for a cool aesthetic. Use them in a flower vase to keep the plants fresh and add a splash of intrigue to the vase. The uses are limited only by your imagination!

Just preplan if you’re going to make ice balls because it can take some time to freeze enough to make the decorations look good and have extras just in case they melt too quickly at your party. Another thing you may want to consider is what you use to color the ice balls- fruit punch, food coloring, milk can give you different colors, but you want to be careful that you’re not mixing flavors that will taste disgusting together! That is, if you’re going to drink it. If you’re just using as decorations well then I guess it doesn’t matter what it tastes like.
