I don’t usually make cocktails at home; that’s my husband’s hobby. So after we reviewed the best ice molds for cocktails, I bought our “Best Sphere”-style ice molds by Zoku for him. But I’m the one who ended up getting fanatical about this kind of ice.
I have started putting the huge, 2.5-inch spheres of ice in every beverage I drink, all day long. Iced coffee? Yep. Flavored seltzer? You bet. Plain old ice water? Nothing plain about it, with a giant globe of ice bobbing in my glass. I feel fancy. Call it self-care.
Here’s the thing. Cute as these ice spheres are, I would have done this exactly once if the Zoku Ice Ball Molds (about $17 for two) also weren’t incredibly easy to use. I like to treat myself, but I am also a little lazy.
