BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!
ICE ICE BABY:
While I can't wait for the snow and ice to melt outside, inside I love to make up batches of fun ice cubes to add to cocktails. Here are just a few things I do:
1.) To make a martini extra special I take an ice tray and fill half of it with olive juice (our store now carries a jar of just olive juice, perfect for those who enjoy dirty martinis) and with the other half I make regular ice cubes but add olives to the water. When I fill a glass with vodka I drop in the cubes according to how dirty the guest enjoys their tini and add a fun olive stuffed cube, too!
2.) We love a good margarita and sometimes enjoy tequila straight up! To add a delicious twist I make ice cubes out of Trop 50 Limeaide (lower calorie lime juice) and drop them into a glass of tequila with a salted rim!
3.) I make trays of cranberry juice and orange juice and drop those in vodka/soda combinations in the summer.
4.) For the kiddos I'll make ice cubes with cherries or gummy bears or worms then drop them in seven up which guarantees a big grin on their faces!
