RSVP Collection No. 51 - Flavored Ice Cubes

Our favorite summer drink is all about the lip-smacking refreshment is offers us under the hot sun! Here are some great flavored ice cube idea to take it a bit further. And they are simple.

1. Strawberry Purée
Blend fresh or frozen strawberries with a touch of lime juice.
Try with › A vodka lemonade, a margarita.
2. Cucumber Purée
Purée the flesh and skin separately in a food processor.
Try with › A Pimm’s Cup.
3. Dried Orange Peel and Cumin
Grind together and add water.
Try with › A lime rickey.
4. Citrus
Squeeze and strain the juice of fresh lemons and limes.
Try with › A gin and tonic, a vodka soda.
5. Honey Simple Syrup
Use a two-to-one ratio of water to unpasteurized honey so the mixture will freeze.
Try with › A bourbon smash, a Tom Collins.

Flavored sparkling water or fruit flavored ice tea? Sprinkle blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries in your ice cube tray. Add water and freeze. You and your dazzling ice are going places. (Okay maybe just from the kitchen to the hammock. But that's some place.)

Tip: Use silicone ice cube trays for best results.

Your freshly brewed tea won't be the same!
