I have done this for years - I make lemonade cubes for my iced tea, and it is perfect! Limeaide cubes are great for lemonade, and strawberry cool aide cubes for lemonaide for those of you who like strawberry lemonaide - my sweetie loves them!!

This has changed my life!! No more guzzling to have full strength drinkies. I was adventurous and tried green tea. Also good, so I tried coffee. A hit. Always love to try new things to impress the in-laws, but they just rolled their eyes. I would suggest that everyone keep this little secret to themselves.

Thanks for giving our creativity a kick start, Erin! Great idea. I like lime cokes, so I did a tray using limeade, and a tray using raspberry juice for our morning smoothies. Thanks for sharing!

Been doing this for years. Especially when it is as hot outside as it is today (over 100 degrees!) this is a great way to keep beverages cold longer. I have an automatic ice maker built in under my counter, but I bought ice cube trays especially for this use! I have also used this idea to pour my kids favorite drinks in a cup, let it melt just a bit and have wonderful slushies!

Well, thanx for the idea, but I've done it a million times, and at first I thought I wouldn't try it. However, I LOVE tea, and I enjoyed this! Thanx!

What a great and simple idea! I tried this with punch I made for Christmas and froze some of it (until slushy) in custard cups instead of ice cube trays. It looked great and kept the punch cold without getting it watery.
