Tuesday Tips: The Frozen Edition

Hot enough for ya? It certainly is for me. I'm hoping that summer takes the hint over the Labor Day weekend and starts packing up for good. In the meantime, here are a couple of cooling Tuesday Tips.

  • Take that watermelon you bought at the market and pureé it up. Freeze it in ice cube trays and use to chill your club soda, ginger ale or lemonade.
  • It's definitely too hot for coffee. Pour your morning leftovers into ice cube trays and then chill your iced coffee. It won't get watered down as the cubes melt.
  • No sense in letting your Bloody Mary get watered down either. You can certainly freeze tomato juice in an ice cube tray, but why not use frozen grape or cherry tomatoes.
