Here are some ideas to help you with making your drinks more festive...
Having a drink that is decorative can be fun and easy. Be creative and enjoy decorating your ice cubes for your next gathering! Also, when freezing fruit juice, it is suggested that you use a different ice cube tray. Some juices are strong and can either change the color of or flavor your freezer containers.
To make clear ice cubes, freeze hot boiling water in the ice cube trays (be careful not to burn yourself).
Freeze cubes with curled pieces of lemon or lime peel for your iced tea. For added taste add a little lemon or limejuice to the ice cube before freezing.
To decorate a glass of water for the table, use ice cubes, which have a fresh cherry, blueberry or strawberry frozen inside.
To decorate your mint ice tea, add a few fresh mint leaves to your ice cubes before freezing.
To flavor and color to a glass of water, freeze your left over fruit juices.
If you would like to add an interesting table center decoration to your buffet table, freeze edible flowers in your ice cubes. Your guests will be amazed at the colorful bowl of water. Add a ladle, some water glasses (nearby) and invite them to enjoy a glass of water.
For iced coffee, lightly thaw ice cream, pour into your ice cube trays and refreeze for that special treat on a warm summer day.
