If clear ice cube spheres are your thing this mold does the trick and makes pure see-through ice globes just like you find in fine cocktail bars. I've tried to achieve clear ice spheres using a variety of techniques and have not been successful. This mold works beautifully. The only downside is it makes only two perfect ice spheres at a time, but it  is the perfect amount for you and your honey. Need more than two cubes? Make them in advance and store in a plastic bag in the fridge.


For the Champagne Connoisseur
