Fun Summer Drink Ideas
To celebrate the beginning of summer, we love to make colorful ice cubes for beverages! It’s a fun and healthy way to stay hydrated. Here are a few ideas:
Raspberry Mint ice cubes: to make simply add a fresh mint leaf and a raspberry or two to each ice cube before freezing. These are super pretty! You can add any kind of berry or cut fruit that you like. These ice cubes are excellent in lemonade, ginger ale and ice tea. If you don’t love mint try adding basil for a more savory option.
Layered ice cubes: to make pour a layer of juice or other colored liquid into your tray, about 1/3 full. Freeze for a couple hours until set. Add a second layer, freeze again until set. Add a third layer and freeze until completely frozen. A great combo is blueberry juice, mango juice and raspberry juice. These are excellent for adding to chilled club soda or lemonade, the frozen juice layers will slowly flavor your drink!
Tea or coffee ice cubes: to make simply fill your tray with left over tea or coffee. This is the perfect addition to your ice tea or coffee favorites because the ice will not water down your beverage like regular ice cubes will.
