My husband and I both being from the south, we drink a good deal of sweet tea. Having brunch on our back porch last weekend I decided to spruce things up a bit and offer some flavored ice cubes with tea and lemonade. I did two flavors, lemon lime and berry. For the lemon lime ice I sliced up a lime and added a mixture of lemon and orange juice, and for the berry, I dropped a few berries into the trays and poured in a mixture of cranberry and orange juice. The ice cubes not only looked pretty but had a surprisingly potent effect in transforming these classic beverages.

I’ve done flavored ice cubes but never actually thought about adding the fruit! I love it!
Lovely, lovely, lovely! I especially love the first photo…=>
Sounds light and refreshing with just a little effort ahead of time.
Great idea! Love it and I am so going to copy this for special occasions at my house. There are so many diff. flavor combos you could try and i especially love how pretty your photos always are … making me look bad!
It was the best Mother’s day brunch ever!! Loved every detail you added that day. Everything was beautiful.
Thanks so much.
