Advanced Techniques - How To Make An Ice Ball Cocktail



With the holiday season approaching, odds are you’re about to spend way more time at big gatherings with food prepared in bulk. You’ll load your plate with Grandma’s mac and cheese and jump into a few heated discussions about politics. Before heading out to play flip cup with your cousins in the garage, you’ll need a drink. Then you’ll spot the punch bowl: a watery mess of melting ice and sliced fruit. Was this fruit punch or eggnog? You'll shudder, because you knew better. When you mix a batch drink, you use an ice block.

Ice blocks sound fancy and complicated, but they are neither of those things. Made of just water and fruit (we like cranberries), an ice block keeps your drink cold without overly diluting the good stuff.
