  • Freshen Up Those Ice Cubes With Mints

    [caption id="attachment_1378" align="alignleft" width="496" caption="Mint Leaves in Ice Trays"]leaves[/caption]


    Putting mints in your ice-cubes is a great way to freshen up your summer time drinks. When I first heard this, I was a little taken aback. If anything, I was used to putting a lemon or lime in my water, never putting something in the ice trays. But this recipe is so easy to make, and makes your water, coke, sprite anything you want, a little more fresh. Here's what you do:

    1. Buy some mint leaves at the grocery store or local farmers market
    2. Cut up mint leaves, big enough to put in single slot in your ice tray
    3. Fill up ice tray with water
    4. Place one mint leaf in an individual slot
    5. Put in freezer until ready

    Easy enough? Try it out and enjoy the fresher twist to your everyday glass of water.
