This Ice Ball Cocktail Is the Coolest Thing

Even though all cocktails should be simple, I’ll excuse a little flair for this awesome ice ball cocktail because it’s just too much fun. An ice cube sphere looks like it’s frozen with a drink inside until it’s hammered to break open the liquid goodness. It all works perfectly because the former ice sphere that held the drink transforms into the perfect rocks for the drink.


Cocktail Chemistry explains how to make it below. The key is to make sure you don’t freeze the entire ice ball!

The Aviary in Chicago, one of the best cocktail lounges in the world, has been making their version of this for years. They call it “in the rocks” and they have a little elastic wrist rocket type deal you break the ice with. It's fantastic.
