Keep Pitcher Drinks Properly Chilled With Muffin Ice Cubes
Using muffin molds to freeze ice cubes is perfect for making a ton of ice at a time or freezing whole lemon slices to fortify citrus fruits, but it’s also a great way to make ideal sized ice cubes for storing jugs and punch bowls chilled.
Because muffin molds produce larger ice cubes than a regular tray, you need fewer cubes to keep drinks refreshingly cool. The muffin cubes also melt more slowly, which means you spend less time adding more ice to the jugs, and they dilute drinks less than regular ice cubes. If you’re having a big party, batch these cubes ahead of time and store them in zippered bags to keep them fresh and have plenty for the whole party.
