    Good idea! The balls have a tendency to break in half...

    Put me down for ten and bill me. But only if they truly are essential. I'm trusting you on this.

    I once had "ice balls"; a byproduct of an extended ice-fishing trip on Brest Bay when the temperature was around zero, and the wind was about 20 mph. They finally did warm up... than God!

    With experience you'll learn how much ice is enough or to much.
    Just try one cube and you'll get the experience of different tastes with each sip.
    Or are you just promoting a product?

    Yep, good idea but I think the original post was to promote a product.

    Cold and a water take away from the flavor for me. I'm drinkin bourbon when I'm thirsty, I'll use water when I'm dirty.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.
