    Re: Ice Ball Maker from Maker's Mark

    Certainly a conversation starter. Believe I'll stick with my cracked ice though as the Bourbon doesn't last long enough to become diluted.

    Guess we better find something warm and comforting to drink. Wait, I know just the thing . . .

    Re: Ice Ball Maker from Maker's Mark

    I also bought a set when i was in NY from MoMA, probably prefer the red MM version as the guys do give me a bit of sh*t for having a pink set. I am a big advocate of them though as they do last for two drinks worth here in the Sunshine State.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    There are all sorts of these molds available... in various sizes. Just Google "ice ball molds".

    Just a disclaimer to anyone who might be looking at ice trays made of silicone. I had a nice set a couple years back, they were perfect 1.5" cubes. After a few uses, I noticed my drinks started tasting a little off. Sure enough, it was the ice. I tried everything to wash the trays, vinegar, baking soda, regular soap and water, but nothing worked. YMMV, but that is why I like the non-silicone MM ice ball trays.

    Yes, filling is a bit annoying so I'm going to drill out a wider hole for ease of filling. I've made a dozen 1/2 balls which seemed cool.
