Ice Globe with mango granite and pomegranate disk
1 round balloon
1 cup mango juice
1/3 cup pomegranate juice
1 cup sparkling water
1 pc tile or slate rock
Fill the balloon with cold water to the desired size (Should be the size of a grapefruit). Tie theend off and place on a ramekin, or coffee mug. Freeze for four hours in a residential freezer or two and half hours in a commercial freezer.
Pour the mango juice into a container with the sparkling water. Freeze until solid.
Do the same with the pomegranate juice but on a flatter surface like a plastic cafeteria tray.
Also place the tile or slate rock in the freezer for at least 4 hours. Remove the balloon from the freezer and using a knife, cut the balloon away from the iceglobe. Smash the end with the handle of the knife and drain the remaining water on the inside of the globe. With very cold running water rinse out the inside of the globe to remove any excess ice crystals.
Place the opening face down on a hot pan and spin the globe for a couple of seconds to form an even rim. Then touch the bottom of the globe on the pan for one second to form a small flat surface for the globe to sit flush on the tile. Remove the tile or rock from the freezer and tick the globe to the surface. Place back in the freezer.
Remove the juices from the freezer and scrape the mango with a fork to create fine crystals.
Using cutters, or a knife, cut the pomegranate juice into disks. Place the scraped mango juice into the globe and place the disk on top.
