How to Make Ice Cubes For Punch

Avoid Diluting Pitcher Drinks With Flavorful Ice Cubes

Entertaining in hot weather can sometimes be tricky. Case in point: you're serving a punch or pitcher drink like sangria and it will be sitting outside for a couple of hours. How do you keep it cold without diluting the drink?

If you use regular ice cubes, the beverage will definitely be watered down. That's why it's important to take the time to make special ice cubes! Instead of filling ice cube trays with water, fill with one (or more) of the ingredients that are in your libation.

Fruit juice, fresh-squeezed citrus juice, fruit purees, soda, and sparkling juices all work wonderfully. For a pretty flair, add a slice of fruit, berries, or an herb sprig or leaf to each ice cube. When the cubes melt, the berries or lemon slices or herb sprigs will float in the punch. Have you ever made special ice cubes?
