Why freeze an octagonal block of ice only to shape it into a sphere with an $800 contraption? If watching the Cirrus Ice Ball Press‘ aluminum halves channel the ambient air temperature to melt away everything but a perfect glove doesn’t blow your brain straight out of your earhole, try some whiskey on the rocks. Spheres, of all 3-D shapes, have the lowest surface area, which means less contact with ice-melting booze—and a drink that’s cold but not watered down.
