What is the right amount of liquid to use in the 19th Hole Ice Ball mold?
1 cup of liquid makes perfect ice balls. We prefer to use a dry measuring cup because we get a more exact measurement. However, you need a steady hand or you will make a mess. Whenever I use a liquid measuring cup I always feel like I am using about a cup, but with the dry measuring cup, with the liquid teetering on the rim just about to overflow, I feel I have a more exact measurement.
Are water ice balls different from juice ice balls, other than the obvious?
The biggest difference is that juice does not harden as hard as water at the normal temperatures of most freezers. So the water in the juice freezes, but the juice itself may not be as frozen. The result of this is pretty cool, pun intended. When you use a juice ball, some of the juice will flavor your drink ever so slowly. After a few drinks using your juice ice balls, you will find that your juice ice balls are actually slushy balls. They may even be bigger then when they started. Some juice went out of the ball and some drink went into the ball. The result is a delicious slushy ice ball that won’t crack you teeth like might occur chewing on just ice.
