Well you’re going to have to do it with class, with style, you’re going to have to be prepared – and that means taking cues from some of Hong Kong’s top spots.
The Japan Trend Shop – the world’s outlet for all things quirky – have you covered with their range of bar-grade ice ball molds.
Not only do these fantastic professional-grade molds create solid ice balls, traditionally used by Japanese connoisseurs of fine cognac and whiskey because of the slow dilution, but the latest mini mold creates tiny soccer balls, enough for your party to be themed but not tacky (you could even colour them for the winning side).
The ice ball molds, which aren’t cheap, come in a range of sizes – the smallest, at 30mm, is hand-held – and make for a stylish addition to your living room wet bar.
You also save a hell of a lot on ice runs to the 7-11.
