citrus + mint ice cubes are my fave

July 19, 2012

Today’s summer entertaining idea is from Sarah of Two Blue Lemons.

I don’t have to tell you it’s hot outside today. Sometimes hot weather food can be the trickiest of all. You want flavor, refreshment, ease, no oven. These simple ice cubes are my tiny celebration of summer.

Slice citrus and rip mint into empty cube trays. Fill with water and freeze. I used a mix of lemon, lime, and orange although almost any fruit would work. Raspberries would be particularly pretty especially floating in a summery cocktail or sangria.

    Quick tip: if you make your ice cubes with boiled water they will stay clear and not get cloudy as they freeze. Makes the finished drinks look even prettier! ;) I’m gonna have to give the citrus + mint a try!

    I just did a post on harvesting herbs by making ice cubes and mentioned doing the same for mint to be put in a drink. But with citrus as well!? Well that’s just ingenious.
