NO ICE CUBES IN THE C-SUITE! REAL PLAYERS PRESS AN ICE BALL WHEN TOASTING THE LATEST ROUND OF VENTURE CAPITAL.
For years, women have had an insatiable desire for larger and larger rocks. We think it’s about time men started caring about rocks too. We're not talking about diamonds – but ice cubes. And believe it or not, all ice cubes are not created equal. We hate to see traditional ice cubes in mixed drinks, because they dilute the spirit too fast, resulting in the swift loss of taste and flavor. That's why many gentlemen are starting to drink using a single large ice cube. Even better if it’s a sphere! If you’re a showman and appreciate a timeless piece that will impress friends and look great on your countertop, then the Cirrus Ice Ball Press Kit is for you. At $429, it isn’t cheap, but it produces perfectly spherical ice cubes that last hours. Here's why that's important: a sphere has the least surface area of any solid, creating the lowest possible ice-to-alcohol contact ratio and allowing the slowest dilution into the cocktail. Originally created for high-end Scotch or Whiskey, ice spheres are now used in a variety of creative drinks and cocktails. If you’re looking for something almost as effective, but a little easier on the pockets, try jumbo ice cube trays.
