Cirrus Press Ice Maker
I will admit upfront that this gift idea is both superfluous and superbly designed for the 1%. Nonetheless, a lot of designing (and years) have gone into creating the Cirrus Press Ice Ball Maker. The press is available in two sizes 2-3/4” or 2” and the cost is ridiculously expensive. The price range is from $429 for just the 2” press, or $699 for the kit which includes the 2” press, drip tray, ice cup molds and tongs (plus a case to store all the ice making equipment). What you get out of it, is described as the perfect shape for ice. The ice sphere is designed to keep your beverage colder longer, and without rapid melting that dilutes your drink. An ice sphere has less surface area of any solid, so this means slower dilution. So sit back, relax and remember to sip slowly—you now have ample time to enjoy your perfectly crafted cocktail.
