Thursday Tip of the Week No3


Hallo people! I am back and this time it is Cool Minty Cubes I have for you. I made these mint cubes for a drinks party at home last week and they were well apprecaited, so I had to share them with you. I just put one leaf of fresh mint in each of the ice tray pockets and then filled the tray with water. These cubes look particularly pretty when put in fresh lemonade. Just put one or two cubes per glass , so that when they melt there is only one or max two mint leaves at the bottom of the glass. Lemonade with a touch of minty fragrance is very refreshing. With carbonated drinks they go well with Sprite and Bacardi Lemon Breezers.

I also made a few cubes with coke . I hate it when my coke becomes all watery due to the ice. And coke cubes solved the problem.

Anupama,
I knew about such ice cubes, and often make them with watermelon pieces or kiwi pieces in the centre.
However, your idea of coke cubes rocks. It is just fundoo. :) Thank you so much for sharing it.
