Cirrus Ice Ball Press, Williams-Sonoma

Some bartenders swear that the best way to preserve the flavor of a top-shelf spirit served "on the rocks" is to pour the spirit over a single ice sphere, which supposedly melts more evenly and slowly than standard ice cubes. The booze-swilling plebes among us just know that it looks really, really cool -- definitely cool enough to justify the purchase of this Cirrus Ice Ball Press Kit from Williams-Sonoma. The small size retails for $699 and makes three ice spheres per batch, while the large is $1,099 and makes five.
