With Pokemon Ice Balls You Can Catch All The Drinks
July 13, 2016
Pokemon Go is taking America by storm, but if you want in on the action without leaving the comfort of your home bar you might try making these Pokemon-themed ice balls instead.
The process is really easy. I did it with two different sized ice ball molds:
- These smaller (roughly 2 inch diameter) Final Touch ice ball molds
- These large 2.5 inch diameter Arctic Chill ice ball molds
Step 1: Fill the bottom half of an ice ball mold with red liquid. I used cranberry juice in one (the darker one) and one of the red flavors of Gatorade in the other. Let it freeze overnight.
Step 2: Chill some water. Put it in the refrigerator for a long time, then into the freezer for 20-30 minutes so it is just above freezing. You don't want to add hot water to the mold or it will make the red color bleed into the other half of the ice ball.
Step 3: Attach the top of the mold and fill the other half with the cold water.
Step 4: Wait for it to freeze then pop it out and catch all the drinks.
These Pokemon ice balls would be fun in non-alcoholic Pokemon cocktails or perhaps in a Pokemon Gin & Tonic.
I had very nice results using Campari ice cubes. Watch a Manhattan morph into a Boulevardier... beautiful.

If you want to go the extra mile you can attempt to make a silicone mold or commission a Pokeball. Death Star is so close of a mold.
