Large Round Ice Ball Molds

Updated on June 20, 2013

Large Round Ice Balls

Let me start by saying that I enjoy my whiskey, scotch and bourbon. I do not like to mix them with anything, I enjoy the flavor of it on its own. My drink of choice is whiskey on the rocks. While I do like to drink it neat (straight up no ice) from time to time, I find that I prefer the colder temperature and the melted ice helps to bring out the flavor.

However, it is not ideal when the ice cubes are small and melt quickly and water down my drink. For this reason, I believe that large round ice balls are the best way to go. A large round ice cube will keep your drink cold and the ice will melt slower than lots of small ice cubes. This is a perfect way for a nice cold drink with just the right amount of water to bring out the flavor.

Ice Rounds Are a Great Invention

I love using my ice rounds! They are really easy to use. Once they are frozen, you simply remove the top half and push the bottom of the lower half and the ice round pops right out.

Just remember, the ice rounds are 2.5 inches in diameter so make sure that you are using a wide tumbler glass. Notice the wider Makers Mark glass that I'm using fits the ice round perfectly. However, the Knobb Creek glass has too narrow of a top to allow the ice round to fit in.

Stone Cask Ice Rounds

These round ice molds are great. You get two molds that each make a 2.5 inch round ice cube. The large round ice balls look cool, they melt slow and they keep your drink at the perfect temperature with the perfect amount of melted water to enhance the flavor.

Filling Your Ice Round Molds

How To Make Round Ice Cubes (or spheres to be more accurate)

Filling your ice round molds is really easy. Simply put the top of the molds on the lower halves. They are made from silicon and they fit together very nicely.

There is an easy to use small whole at the top of the molds. Poor you water in there to fill the mold. Be sure to leave a little air at the top to allow the ice room to expand. Otherwise you will end up with ice coming out the top and down the side.

Wide Tumbler Glasses

To enjoy your ice rounds properly, you need a nice glass. Here are some examples of perfect glasses for enjoying your adult beverages.

These are pretty cool glasses that truly reflect on the Makers Mark brand image. As you know, each bottle of Makers Mark has the cork hand dipped in a red wax. That is how these glasses are fashioned. Each glass is hand dipped and laser etched with the Makers Mark logo. Your ice rounds will fit in perfectly too as these snifter glasses are 3.5 inches tall and 3.25 inches in diameter.

I’d really like to order these. I cut my teeth on enjoying whiskey with Jamison’s. These glasses are actually made from real Jameson Irish Whiskey bottles. Their dimensions are 3.5 x 3.5 x 4 inches.

      This has a lot of possibilities...I've never seen them before. These would be good in my favorite mixed drink: Tanqueray and tonic. Cheers!
