LifeStyleWebTV's picture
Having company for cocktails? How about adding a special twist (and yummy conversation piece) to your guests’ drinks? These strawberry ice cubes are a delightful way to dress up a drink. They’re surprisingly simple to make and guaranteed to make a splash. Get even more creative by choosing a themed ice cube tray, like hearts, to add pizazz to any occasion. It's a perfect way to cool down during a summer barbeque or garden party.
Ingredients
  Strawberries/Blueberries 1 Pound, halved (3 Cups)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1 Teaspoon (As Required Toasted)
Directions

Put all of the ingredients together in a blender and purée until smooth. Pour into the ice cube trays. This recipe makes about two or more trays, depending on the size of the cubes within the tray. Put the trays in the freezer and freeze for about three hours or until solid.

Be sure to prepare at least a few hours before your company comes.

These strawberry ice cubes are lovely in a glass of white wine or a clear cocktail like vodka and soda. They also add a decorative and delicious touch to a pitcher or glass of lemonade or iced tea in the summertime. As the cubes melt they will diffuse the strawberry flavour into your drink.

*Note that smaller sized cubes fit nicely in a cocktail glass, but you can use any size you like. You may also want to modify the amount of sugar used to suit your taste, as the amount indicated yields a mixture that is quite sweet.
