My favorite time of year! During summer, I am definitely in the mood for entertaining, long beach days, bright fun colors, and refreshing beverages (wellI'll take one of those all year round, just saying..)
I'm always trying to think of ways to dress up drinks, especially when you’re having summer parties! These summer fruit infused ice cubes are the perfect addition to any cocktail, mocktail, or just plain old water. I made a huge batch of these and have been popping them in my La Croix sparkling grapefruit water. Best summer drink ever! If you're having a party or happy hour, pour a shot or 2 of vodka and you got your self the most refreshing, summery cocktail! Love it!
These adorable ice cubes are so simple to make. Hardly no prep time, you just have to wait for the water to freeze and there ya have it! Pick a couple of your favorite summer fruits. I am a huge fan of pineapple and strawberries, so that's what I chose, but any fruit would be great! (watermelon, berries, kiwi, etc)
♥ Fill an ice cube tray with a piece or 2 of fruit. (I love this chunky ice cube tray because it makes large square ice, and I really only pop 1 or 2 into a drink and you're good to go)
♥ Fill with water
♥ Pop into the freezer over night
♥ Serve in your fav summer drink!
What are some of your favorite things to do/make in the summer??
XO Melissa ♥
