Here are some of my favourite ways to make ice cubes better than they already are.

Idea # 1: If you will be serving a few types of drinks, make the ice cubes out of those drinks. For example, freeze coca cola to serve with... well, coca cola. Your guests will aprreciate not having watered-down soda!

Idea # 2: Fill ice cube trays with lemonlime soda and plop a grape into each ice cube section. When they're frozen, serve with apple juice or punch. You can also try other combos to see what they taste like.

Idea # 3: When serving milkshakes, leave some shake left over and pour into ice cube trays. Put M&Ms or other small candy in each section. Let freeze and put 5 or 6 cubes in each milkshake. Again, experiment with milkshakes and candies.

Idea # 4: Put water in ice cube trays and put a gummy bear in each section. Serve with water.

Anyone else have ice cube ideas? I love making creative ice cube/drink combos.

Something which is slightly related is to freeze left-overs of wine for use in cooking. I thought that was quite clever...

Ooh, I like that idea! I'll have to tell my relatives who use wine to cook all the time.

We do the same thing with vegetable stock here. Homemade stock is so much tastier than canned/cubes, and this makes it mucho convenient.

You can also freeze chopped up fresh herbs or pestos in ice cube trays.  Then whenever your recipe calls for it you just drop in a cube or two.  Cheesy
