One of my biggest complaints is watered down drinks. With summer just around the corner I’m looking for ways to solve this issue. When I was offered the opportunity to try the Kuuk Silicone Ice Ball Maker in the large size in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion I agreed. I hoped it would solve my beverage issue.
When the Kuuk silicone ice ball maker arrived the first thing I did was wash it out with some warm soapy water and let it air dry. Once I knew the silicone was dry I thought about what I wanted to make in the silicone molds. I was getting ready to make a batch of sun tea for a dinner party I was going have so I thought about making the ice balls for the party. I took a lemon and sliced it into little wedges and placed some in each ball. Then I put the top on. Once I knew I had a secure seal all around I poured water in the top until they were full. Then I placed them in freezer. Not sure how long it took to freeze as I was busy doing other things and forgot to check them until the next day. They were very easy to get out of the silicone. I just pulled off the top and popped each ball out. It looked pretty neat with the lemons inside the spheres. I didn’t let the molds warm up or anything because I wanted a second set of ice balls, so I repeated what I had done the day before.
That night at the dinner party I placed one sphere into everyone’s glass and then poured the ice tea. The tea became cold without becoming water down. Plus the balls with lemons frozen inside were a hit. Great conversation piece.
