Ice trays are not just for freezing ice, Agree? These cool and creative Ice Tray Hacks are worth trying!
Learn how to freeze all your favorite things in cube form
After a week of commuting to Manhattan, we can see why everyone hates New York City in the summer. Warm air + sweaty people + no personal space = everyone standing WAY too close for comfort. And then your night always starts the same way: you’re out with your pals, you order a drink from the bar, and the bartender hands you a cup with more ice than liquid. When you finally get to the bottom, it’s essentially all water, and it’s annoying.
Enter: the wonderful world of ice trays. Here are 14 creative ways to stay cool and keep your drink from becoming watered down the liquid.
1. Coffee Ice Cubes
If you’ve ever taken more than twenty minutes to finish your iced coffee, you understood the struggle of melted ice and watered down coffee. Behold, the coffee ice cube: an ingenious way to keep your coffee cool and strong till the very last sip. Just pour some leftover coffee into an ice tray, pop it in the freezer, and let it chill for 3-4 hours.
2. Mojito Cubes
The perfect drink for a hot summer day is a mojito, and these cubes will keep yours cool until you finish the pitcher (shhh, no one needs to know). The cubes are made of equal parts water, sugar and lime juice. Leave some room to finish them off with rum and garnish each cube with a lime slice and shreds of mint leaves for a subtle flavor boost.
3. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cubes
It’s like strawberries dipped in chocolate fondue, but cooler (no pun intended). Eat them straight up, in hot chocolate, coffee, or a glass of milk.
