This is a totally Martha Stewart thing I'll confess but it made me happy so whatever.
We have a fresh mint plant and we never use it for anything so I searched online what to do with fresh mint and these ice cubes came up. I modified it a little but basically...
Fresh Mint Leaves
Berries (blueberries or raspberries)
- Boil about 2 cups of water and 8-12 fresh mint leaves on the stove. When the leaves turn dark remove the leaves and set the water aside to cool (This is important!)
- Squeeze half of a lemon into 2 cups of water and slice the remaining half into small chunks (mine don't look as pretty as I had hoped)
- Pour lemon water into ice cube trays and drop berries or lemon slices into each one.
- Use the mint water that is now cool and pour that into the remaining ice cube trays, drop a fresh mint leaf into each one.
