Cool As Ice
If you’ve never made your own flavored ice, you’re in for a real treat. Whether you’re looking to spice up your next tequila-based drink or just looking for some more refreshing water, this will take your drinks to the next level! It’s also a very easy way to make an impression if you’re hosting guests.
Here we were working on some easy paloma recipes and we wanted to infuse a little cilantro, lime and jalapenos. Not to mention, we had all of those things in abundance and didn’t want it to go bad.
The process is as simple as you’d think: just slice, cut and dice to fit into the ice tray, add water and freeze.
After we made these for the tequila and gin drinks, I couldn’t stop using the flavored ice for my water, either. While this was made during the summer, there are a lot of ideas for winter drinks as well.
Here are some ideas to try:
- Cranberries and orange slices
- Green Apples
- Frozen berries
There are apparently now a lot of apparatuses for making clear ice, because, you know… you don’t want to have imperfect ice, do you? We haven’t gone that far yet, but it is fun to experiment. I’ve also frozen coffee for when I want iced coffee and don’t want it watered down. Pinterest has also been showing frozen almond milk to use in smoothies. So many options!
Let us know how you use flavored ice!
