I've become rather addicted to the ice balls I described earlier
. I now make them with mineral water, though I don't know how much difference that really makes. They are certainly not crystal clear—I think you have to buy in elaborately made professional ice to get that. In fact I added one to a glass of bourbon last night and noticed some rather pretty patterns in the ice:
|Rather like a tiger's eye gemstone, isn't it?|
Can any science boffins out there tell me what is going on here? I'm guessing that as the water freezes from the outside in, something happens to trapped air, but I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it before.
|Or like a frozen exploding sun. There's a good name for a cocktail|
