An ice ball is an unusual gift but boy was it a good one.

One of the gifts I received at Christmas time was two of these.  You are probably wondering what it is.

mouldIt is a mould for making an ice ball.  The gift included two moulds and they are really great for keeping your drink cold.  The ice seems to last for ever.

before the liquid gets to the bottomThis is before the liquid gets past the ice ball.

doneThis is when the liquid has drained past the ice ball.

top of mouldThe mould has a flexible top which makes it very easy to remove the ice ball.

underside of mouldThis is the underside of the mould.  It is handy having two moulds but so far I have only used one as the ice ball seems to last for such a long time.

The brand is Tovolo and you can find out about them here.

My next step is to make some interesting ice spheres incorporating mint leaves, lemon zest and pomegranate.
