Bored of serving your drinks on the rocks? Why not try in the rocks? This cocktail sphere will certainly surprise everyone. A hollow ice sphere is filled with the desired cocktail and drinkers get to smash it open at the table. Great presentation and a lot of fun!
This fantastic presentation adds a new dimension to your favorite cocktail. To release the cocktail in the glass, just break the hollow ice sphere using a small hammer and enjoy. Be careful not to hit the glass and break it too! You can also use a muddler for this purpose.
At some mixology bars, the hollow ice sphere is made using an expensive cold immersion circulator but in this post we explain you how to obtain similar results with The Original Whiskey Ball and a regular freezer. The advantage of using an immersion circulator is that it is a lot faster and it is easier to obtain a hollow sphere with consistent ice wall thickness.
