I came about these not just tasty but pretty cubes when I was making mojitos. I went overboard squeezing limes and had 1 1/2 cups of juice left over so I tossed in lime and mint and walla! If you skip the sugar it will be very tangy the way I enjoy it. Do use these in lemonade, juice, punch, ice teas, cocktails of choice.........
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh lime juice (lemon,orange.. can be used)
- 1⁄4 cup sugar (optional)
- 1 cup water
- 24 lime wedges
- 24 mint leaves
- Mix lime juice and sugar till dissolved.
- Add water mix and pour into 2 ice cube trays.
- Place 1 lime wedge and 1 mint leaf in each section. Top with additional water if need. Freeze till solid.
excellent idea! I used only lemon and lime juice and no water or sugar and these are just the thing to pop into a glass of water to pep it up with no effort at all. I'm trying to be healthier and drinking glasses of plain water can get really boring after a while so this is perfect. Also a brilliant idea for using up that half lemon or lime that was left over from some recipe and slowly dries out at the back of the fridge. NO More ! Next time I have a half over I will just slice some off, squeeze the juice and presto no waste! It wouldn't matter if you only add an icecube or two at a time either. Please see my rating system: a perfect 5 stars for a recipe that is simple, saves on kitchen waste and spoiled food, and helps give a zing to water and thus a healthier lifestyle. Thanks!
I put 3 in a short glass and hit it with a shot of vodka, ok maybe a bit more. Let it sit a minute and...oh yea, it was good. I would have put rum, but I didnt have any. Its like an instant mojito. You could put a tsp or so of powdered sugar or equal if you need it a bit sweeter. Yum Yum!
Great idea! Ahhh those Polish minds...:-) I made these to use in a vodka-soda cocktail. I think the sugar is a must in this combination, but if you're using this in something that's already sweet, like a lemonade then you can skip it all together. Thank you.
