Flavored Ice

Keep your pitchers of drinks from tasting like water by the end. Mix up a small batch of the drink, add fruit or herbs and freeze over night. Great fun and beautiful to look at either in individual drinks or in a pitcher of your favorite cocktails. This works just as well with non alcoholic drinks. You can use tea, lemon juice and mint to make a cool additions to a brunch selection for non drinkers.

drink that the ice will be added to - must not be pure alcohol as it will not freeze
Any fruit or herb, Mint, Strawberries, Basil, Mango or anything that will complement the flavors of the drink.

Mix your base and add alcohol if included. Pour into a baking dish or other container to freeze filling 2/3 of the way up. We used a silicone corn bread pan that was deep and square but a mini brownie pan would work just as well. If desired add fruit and herbs. Freeze overnight and enjoy!
