This post inspired me to try making some fancy ice cubes for refreshing summer drinks. It's so easy, I think I'll keep my freezer stocked with them all the time! Here's what I did:
...and an ice cube tray
Place two raspberries in each ice cube spot. Crush a few mint leaves with fingers, and tuck in around raspberries. Pour water over berries and mint, and freeze for about 6 hours.
I brought these to the 4th of July BBQ to make these drinks:
Raspberry mint ice cubes
Muddle mint with vodka in the bottom of a glass. Add two or three raspberry mint ice cubes and peach lemonade and stir. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
Bottoms up! :)
