Make Special Ice Cubes

Iced tea or lemonade for a party looks lovely and tastes great when served with special ice cubes. Freeze a sprig of mint or lemon balm or several slivers of lemon zest in each cube and drop a few in each glass. I also put cubes of frozen pink lemonade (sometimes with maraschino cherries in the center) in regular lemonade. As they melt, the yellow lemonade turns a delicate pink. —Ginger B., Reidsville, North Carolina
