Looking for a romantic and unique idea for your Valentine’s date? These strawberry ice cubes will be the perfect, delicious addition to your champagne.
Champagne and strawberries, it is the must have for romance. At least that is what I learned when I was just a young girl from the movie ‘Pretty Woman.’ Richard Gere wanted to bring some romance to his “sure thing” hooker Julia Roberts. So long story short, if you want to get some this Valentine’s, then this is the recipe. I mean a good 90’s movie won’t steer you wrong right?
Strawberry Ice Cubes
3 cups strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
Blend all ingredients together. Into a medium bowl, press the strawberries through a fine mesh strainer. Pour into a measuring cup to make for easy dispensing. It should equal 2 cups, which will fill an ice cube tray entirely. Freeze for at least four hours before using. Yield: 24 ice cubes.
Another option is strawberry mint ice cubes. Would be delish in lemonade or iced tea. Place mint leaves in ice tray and pour liquid over the mint. Freeze for 4 hours.
