Simple Tip: No More Watery Iced Coffee

With summer on its way I thought I'd share with you one of my most simple tips. If you love a glass of iced coffee, but hate when it gets all watery, then do yourself a favor and make coffee ice cubes. By making coffee ice cubes you'll ensure your iced coffee won't get diluted and you'll have a good use for this morning's leftover coffee. Just use a clean ice tray, fill with coffee and freeze. Once frozen, remove cubes from the ice trays and put into a large ziploc style freezerbag (this helps protect it from that nasty freezer smell/taste). Use them instead of regular ice cubes and ta da! No more watery iced coffee for you!

I did this all last summer and thought that I was SO Brilliant for thinking it up. I caught a lot of heat from my boyfriend, who thought I was a little too insane about my coffee. (He doesn't drink any coffee, so he just doesn't understand!) But--remember at the end of the summer to remove the ice cubes from the tray. I forgot about them when the weather turned and I stoped drinking my coffee iced--only to have guests over one night for a party and they stumbled upon them in one of my ice trays. They thought I was a bit crazy....

This is also a good tip to do with leftover wine (if there is any LOL) or broths. Also, my step-son has ADHD and some coffee (and I just mean a little in some milk) in the morning actually helps him to calm himself and pay attention better, so this will be a great idea for him to get the caffeine without the milk getting too hot tasting from the coffee.

Yeah, it obviously works for other liquids as well. I haven't even thought about it before, but it sure is brilliant.

LOL ... I've been doing this for years! Hubby likes his coffee a LOT cooler than I do so I started making Coffee Cubes - his brothers and friends are so jealous, haha.

Even though I don't drink coffee, this is a great idea for lemonaid and teas.
