mint and berry ice cubes

yumivore berry ice cubes

A great way to add a little pizzaz to a club soda or even a cocktail, freeze berries into ice cubes for a pop of color. Select fruit that’s in season such as raspberries, blueberries or strawberries, or try mint leaves or even lemon wedges – the possibilities are endless on what to add to ice to perk up your drink. Unless the fruit is puréed before freezing, don’t expect a lot of flavor in your glass, just a hint when the ice cubes melt, but the additional berries or mint does add a bit of flair. And certainly your eyes deserve something cool as well!

    What a marvelous summer idea! I have lots of mint in my garden and these frosty cubes would pair well with my afternoon tea!
