(Health-NewsWire.Net, April 04, 2015 ) Beaverton, Oregon -- A lot of science goes in to the art of making perfect drinks and cocktails, the chemistry of taste and physics of different types of ice that bartenders use in trendy bars is something many people fail to recognize. Same is the case with the ice cube and ice sphere debate and it all has to do with science. Vida Viva Home, the brand behind the recently launched Sphericool Ice Ball Maker, has been making an effort to explain to people the science behind the slow melting claim.
Sphericool Ice Ball Maker's claim is that "Larger Ice Spheres melt more slowly than traditional ice cubes, preserving the subtle flavors of spirits, cocktails and coffee, so no more diluted drinks."
The science behind how this works is to do with the ratio of surface area to volume, the spherical shape has less surface area exposed to the beverage -almost 24 percent less - which allows it to melt slower, therefore the drink remains less diluted compared to drinks with traditional rectangular shaped cubes.
Many people have conducted their independent research to understand the difference between ice spheres and ice cubes. This science is good news for people who enjoy bourbon, whiskey, scotch or cocktails that have been chilled to perfection and do not suffer from loss of the integrity of the taste of the drink due to dilution from the melted ice.
Another reason for the popularity of the ice spheres are the unique shape and the impressive sight the balls of ice create, sitting in a tumbler of bourbon or a classic cocktail. Tracing back to where the idea began, the Ice Sphere Trend started in the high end whiskey bars of Japan. Most drink lovers find it hard to resist the charm of a gleaming orb of ice sitting in a glass. However to have the full impact of the ice spheres beauty, it is important to get the ice balls as clear as possible. There are multiple reasons why ice gets cloudy; this has to do with the impurities in the water, the gasses as the water freezes. Clear ice spheres can be frozen at home, through a method that allows the ice to freeze gradually.
