UPDATE: We have a winner! Scroll down to see who is the big ball winner!
I've written about my love of icy cold balls a couple of times in the past. They are a fun way to add some color to a cocktail or punchbowl, and a great gift for someone who is always having parties (and loves balls). It's probably too late to buy a set online in time for Christmas, but I've seen them at Macy's and Homegoods in the past few months.
Do you remember last Christmas, when I filled my ice molds with cranberry & mint?
And when the ice balls melt in your drink, it can be embarrassing.
I also used them during the summer, when I filled them with blueberries. Much less of a spectacle than the mint leaves. But, a little more of a spectacle, since people were referring to them as blue balls.
Lucky for you, I bought two sets of ice ball molds to give to a freshvintage reader. Leave a comment below, and let me know what you would put in your balls. A random winner will win both sets. Be creative! The giveaway ends on Wednesday night at midnight EST.
This is the fifth and last giveaway in my Fresh Gifts for Five Weeks series that celebrates my five year anniversary of blogging, so be sure to enter today! (Especially if you like balls.)
UPDATE: Congratulations to Sunita from asaaan.com. You are the lucky ball winner! I love her idea of using the molds for a punch:
I would lemon slices and mint and throw them in my punch bowl. That would be so pretty in my frescha-white wine and lemon juice punch!
