It would be fun to spherify concentrated olive juice for a martini as well as ginger syrup for a Moscow Mule

love that idea!

I’m so excited to try different recipes with the spherication. I hadn’t realized until I watched your video that there were so many options. I’ve only done balsamic pearls so far and hope I win. Thank you for sharing!

glad you liked it!

Cocktails like Margaritas would be wonderful to spherify.

I am so glad you did this video. I have tried the reverse spherification, but not direct. I am going to try mango spheres to top a tropical cheesecake. Wish me luck!

Good luck!

As well as the olive juice spheres, I would also like to combine them with vermouth spheres.

That would be a nice combo!

Sphere mango essence to dress Key Lime pie! How South Florida!

That is a fantastic idea!

I’d like to spherify fruit juice to add to lemonade.

Great idea, just beware of the pH levels.

I am wondering if it would be possible to to add a layer of different flavor and texture by dropping the still damp with calcium chloride alginate bubbles into another alginate bath.

Check out last week’s Ask a Chef on this topic

I love it! I would like to spherifi EVERYTHING! First thing I would like to spherifi is celery, beet and carrot juice (or any thing I stick in my juicer) to add a little healthy burst to salads!

That’s a great idea! Maybe a good way to get kids to eat their vegetables!

I’d like to spherifi basil, peppers and tomatoes to add a flavor burst to pizza

Good one!

Grape juice for open-faced popping PB&J sandwiches! I have the Modernist ingredients, but didn’t spring for the tools because I wasn’t sure if I would keep doing it (too many kitchen gadgets already). I really need the strainer spoon, but winning the Spherificator would be amazing.

For a home cook if you don’t spring for the Spherificator the Perfect Caviar Maker works just fine for small batches.

That looks like fun. I used your jarred raspberry spheres on some cheesecake and they were delicious, but I think it would be fun to be able to make them myself.

Let us know how it goes!

I’d like to try basil or saffron or a Sriracha with scallops or even do a molasses with ginger or a tangerine or blood orange on a chocolate martini, oh! Grand Marnier atop chocolate mousse. My mind is agog!

All fantastic ideas!

Basil, Sriracha, lime on scallops. Ginger, molasses, blood orange or a Grand Marnier atop a chocolate mousse. My mind is agog!

Love those ideas!

I’d like to have sauce spheres in my noodles. I imagine this fun to eat.

Sure would!

I would like to know if it is possible to spherify alcohol with the direct method and then include these spheres into a mousse. In that case how long could it last liquid?

No, that wouldn’t work. You can do alcohol spheres using our recipe, but it would be very difficult to include it in anything. You can certainly experiment with it.

Can’t wait to try this, it’s gonna be so much fun. Thanks

Let us know how it goes!
