Create the Perfect Ice Sphere with the Tullamore D.E.W Irish Whiskey Gift Pack
The festive season is not complete without festive drinks. That’s why Tullamore D.E.W has provided you with a gift pack to ensure you never run dry. The gift pack includes a clever mould to assist you in making the perfect ice sphere to serve in your drink.
Sounds too complicated? Hold on before you reach for the ice blocks.
Marson Strydom, Mixologist for Tullamore D.E.W in South Africa explains, “Well, the ice sphere has less surface area than multiple blocks, and so it will melt slower, meaning your drink will not be diluted as quickly.”
Along with the mould and your favourite liquor is a cocktail menu for a Tully and Tonic, a surprise for anyone who didn’t realize the great romance that is whiskey and tonic water.
Tully and Tonic Cocktail Recipe
Combine the top and bottom half of the ice sphere mould
Carefully pour water into the mould through the small hole at the top of the sphere
Tap lightly on the side of the sphere to release also air bubbles trapped inside
Top up the sphere to just below the opening (do not overfill the ice sphere)
Place the sphere into the deepfreeze, and wait until the ice has solidified
Remove the ice sphere from the mould and place into a glass
Pour 25 – 50ml Tullamore D.E.W into the whiskey glass
Add 200ml of premium tonic water
Garnish with a lemon wheel
The gift pack is available in liquor stores countrywide and also online at Norman Goodfellow’s and Makro, and retails at a recommended retail price of R269.00 for 750ml.
