We’ve been turning our brains over how to get CLEAR ice for your Whiskey Baller Ice Press. In fact, this was one of the most important parts for us when we created this novelty gift, a fine piece of machinery. Thankfully, we figured out a way to do it that’s inexpensive, and takes little-to-no extra work. Through directional freeze, we have created a little something called the 3 Cup Method.
What you need:
Stack all three cups together, with the plastic one being on top
Fill the top cup with water, keep about an inch clearing at the top.
(PROTIP: bottled water makes for slightly better ice)
Put in freezer for 24 hours or until frozen
(Make sure there is no excess water on the outside of glassware, otherwise they’ll freeze together and make it difficult to detach)
Once frozen, remove the bottom cup by giving a swift tap on the table.
Run warm water over the stainless steel, middle cup for a moment. This will allow you to remove the cup easier.
There is going to be murky ice settled on the outside of the plastic cup, discard that. It can simply be knocked off the edge of a sink.
Inside the plastic cup is your clear ice! Dislodge from the plastic cup, and get to pressing.
Yes, it is actually that easy. 3 cups, 7 steps. That’s it. Hardly takes up any room in your freezer. And creates clear ice, every time.
You can purchase your own stainless steel cups online and punch holes in your own plastic cup, or you can head over to our store and purchase all three parts together.
We believe EVERY ice ball you press should be clear. That’s why we INCLUDE three clear ice cups in your Whiskey Barrel Ice Baller ice press at no additional price. Click here to become the most novel whiskey drinker on the planet.
