If you’re looking to step up your cocktail game, serving drinks in an ice ball will impress all your guests. I get asked enough how to create these that I decided it was finally time to create a tutorial.


Step 1: Get a seasoning injector or syringe, a hammer to crack the ball open, a funnel, a standard ice ball mold and a soldering iron (though it’s not necessary)

Step 2: Fill up the ice ball mold with water and put in the freezer. Freeze only long enough so that a only about a quarter centimeter of a shell remains. About half way through, flip the mold over so it freezes evenly.

Step 3: Run water over the ice ball mold to loosen up the ball. Use the soldering iron to poke a small hole in the top of the ice ball. Make sure the hole is big enough to fit the funnel.

Step 4: Extract the water from inside the ice ball using the syringe. Store the ice balls in a tupperware container in the freezer with the holes facing upwards.

Step 5: Mix your favorite drink and pour into ice ball using funnel.

Step 6: Put ball into glass and smash ice ball before serving.
