Professional bartenders agree - ICE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENT IN ANY COCKTAIL
All the best bars go to great lengths to create the best ice with expensive ice maker machines.
With the Urban Mixology 2pc Ice Ball Mold, this is now possible to do at home!
Impress your friends and family with perfect ice in your cocktails.
OVER-SIZED ICE BALLS (2" diameter)
Over-sized ice balls has lower "surface area to volume ratio", which slows down the melting , thus reducing dilution.
We are proud of the crystal clarity of the Urban Mixology ice balls. Clear ice is important for three reasons:
1) It's beautiful. Ice clarity is often the first thing cocktail connoisseurs look at to judge a cocktail
2) It's pure. No minerals etc. that might add unwanted taste to your cocktail
3) It's slow-melting thanks to the stronger structure in clear ice
ADVANCED DIRECTIONAL FREEZING TECHNOLOGY
The technique to create this perfect clarity is called "directional freezing" which means the ice freezes slowly and in one direction, pushing out all the air and particles, leaving two perfectly clear spheres.
VALUE AND CONVENIENCE
The technique of directional freezing has been around for a long time, but never to this price-point and convenience. Simply add tap-water and put in the freezer overnight. Dispensing the ice is made easy from the smart use of flexible silicone.
BPA-Free, FDA-Approved, Food-Grade silicon. The molds are made out of high-quality material for perfect performance, convenience, safety and durability.

1) placement in the freezer matters. If you get some clouding/bubbles/streaks in your ice try moving to a different part of the shelf or another shelf. This is particularly important if you are using a deep freezer which leads to point two and one of the reasons I am impressed with this particular device...
2) freezer temperature can make a difference. As I was experimenting with homebrew methods I found that my deep freeze (-20° to -30° F) was too cold. It froze the water too fast. Methods that worked in my refrigerator did not always work in my deep freeze. With that said, some of the results were neat, just not clear. I have not experienced that with this device.
My refrigerator's freezer is -6° F and I get the same results as I do from my deep freeze. Being too cold with other methods does not make sense to me but a lot of things don't.
I have made 4 batches, 3 in my fridge and 1 in my deep freeze. My first three batches were in the refrigerator's freezer. 1st was in 18 hrs and only froze 1/3 the way down. 2nd was in 24 hrs (min time recommended) and froze about 90%. 3rd was 30 hrs (max time recommended) and produced the spheres in the pictures (Rye Bourbon Old Fashioned). 4th was in the deep freeze for 24 hrs and produced the same results as batch #3. I actually like the flat bottom of batch #2 and am glad I experimented with the times. Based on how much was frozen below the spheres in batch #4 I think I may be able to get full spheres in 18 hrs and flat-bottomed spheres in 15hrs using the deep freeze.
I used hot tap water for all four batches, approximately 120° F, to achieve my results. Batch 3 has some surface bubbles but, as you can see in the picture, were gone after tempering and pouring the drink. Other devices I tried recommended filtered, boiled, distilled, etc. water. Being able to get flawless ice with tap water is a great convenience. One device I have for 2-inch square ice is designed for only tap water. I used distilled water in it and got streaks. Again this does not make sense to me but I really don't care. I have not tried filtered, boiled or distilled water with this unit. Don't know if I will but if I do I will update this review with the results.
I purchased this for 2 Jacksons. The price has already gone up but I would gladly fork over 3 Jacksons for this device.
If you want clear ice at a reasonable price you have found your maker. Cheers, TKM
I've tried a range of different methods before but this is by far the best product I've used. For me it even works perfectly with straight tap water.
So, if you care about your ice - this is the product for you. Buy with confidence and enjoy your ice!
I'll boil the kettle while I let it come back to room temp, wash and dry, then fill and pop it back into the freezer.
I have forgotten and left them in much longer than the recommended 24 hours but found that it just makes it more difficult to extract them but didn't affect the final result. Would gladly buy again - a solid clear ball in my bourbon makes me happy and melts evenly and slowly.
I welcome any suggestions.
Upgrading to 5 star. See my comment below.
I've tried both tap water and distilled water. The attached picture is this morning's results with distilled water. My results with tap water were worse. My freezer temperature is set at 0°F. My tap water is softened, so I thought maybe the tiny amount of salt was the cause of not getting perfectly clear spheres. So I switched to distilled water. Not a huge difference, but some improvement. I've tried other products by other companies. I was hoping this product, being insulated, would be a quick fix, but no luck thus far. Also, compared to other products (e.g., the Sumpri large spheres which are not insulated fwiw), this leaves a lot of mold lines and flashing on the spheres that you'll have to deal with if that matters to you. I've been experimenting with clear ice for about 2-1/2 months now and haven't gotten anything mind-blowing results-wise. This is my 4th set of molds. It's not a bad product and it's well made for what it is, but if you're expecting a silver bullet that's going to deliver miracle results compared to what you've been getting with other products, this ain't it. (Also, as far as the directional freezing with this product, what's interesting is that while my spheres have bubbles in them and aren't crystal clear, the ice that forms in the reservoir below does get perfectly clear, for whatever that's worth!
Note that these need at least 24 hrs (30 might be better), so plan ahead. I keep making some every day and put into a ziplock bag in the freezer. If you take them out too soon, you’ll have a clear sphere with a flat bottom, which isn’t a big deal. If you leave them in too long, you’ll get a full sphere, but may have more effort to remove the mold from the container.
Get these and you’ll never want to settle for less.
It takes a deep spot in the freezer to fit the assembly in upright. The balls were frozen in 26 hours in a 0F freezer.
