    Hello, I am looking to make some cocktail spheres as described in this post: http://www.molecularrecipes.com/molecular-mixology/cocktail-ice-sphere/ What I am having trouble with is finding the right syringe. I have looked through your site and a few others and cannot seem to get any specifics on what type of syringe to get. I know I will need a large capacity, but what gauge/bore needle should I get? Any suggestions of where to purchase one? I found this one one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Syringes-1-Large-35ml-Syringe-/371033797968?_trksid=p2054897.l4275 on ebay that seems right, but I am not sure. Some guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    I keep having the problem of the syringe melting the ice. I’d kill for a syringe with a plastic needle but I can’t seem to find any.

    Also, I’m curious what you guys have figured out for getting the hole into it without it being too large. My best effort yet is a chilled Dremel blade, but that doesn’t seem too reliable if you’re doing many of these at once.

    Actually, I wonder if I just froze it with a toothpick in the top hole on the mold if that would work. Might be as easy as tipping it upside-down to drain then.

    Hi Matt, we just use the metal needle of a syringe and rotate it to make the hole. I am not sure I understand what’s the issue when you say “melting the ice”.

    What I mean is that where the metal syringe touched the ice, the ice melted rather rapidly, resulting in a bit bigger of a hole in the top than I would like. First world problems I guess. I want to get this process to where even a trained monkey can handle it, so I’ll try to find a solution.

    I’ve heard some people using an electric drill with the smallest drill bit. You may want to try this.
