Make Your Own DIY Ice Balls


Ice cubes are all well and good, but they’re actually not the most efficient way to cool a drink down. Because of their cubical shape, a good portion of their surface area is exposed to liquid. That makes them melt faster and water down your drink. What you really want is a bigger piece of ice that stays submerged and melts slowly. Enter the DIY ice balls.

This video from HouseholdHacker gives you everything you need to make your own spherical ice balls. Sure, you can go on Amazon and purchase an expensive mold to make them easily, but isn’t it more satisfying to do it yourself with common household items?

We think so. And with temperatures rising as the summer continues, you’re going to want to keep your frosty beverages as cold as you can. So deploy these ice balls and enjoy the season.
