Frozen Beverage Blocks

Tag(s): ,

Don’t you love it when great ideas come out of nowhere?! I was sitting in my living room, drinking a cup of water, and thought, “Gee, I wish there was a way for this cup of water to be DIY, super cute, and cold.” And then, BOOM! I can’t believe no one else but me has ever thought of this idea before: frozen water cubes!

Now these are a little time consuming, but totally worth it!

Ingredients for Rainbow Floating Beverage Blocks
  • Water
  • A tray that has lots of little squares that can hold the water and also be frozen
  • decorative twine
Instructions for Rainbow Floating Beverage Blocks
  1. First, take a measuring cup and fill it with water. Exactly 17.25 fl oz. Use a scale! If you’re even slightly off, the WHOLE THING WILL BE RUINED.
  2. For added pizzazz, add food coloring to the water!
  3. Put tray of little squares on a flat surface.
  4. Pour the water into the little squares from the left side. If you pour from the right, you’ll get air bubbles and THE WHOLE THING WILL BE RUINED.
  5. Put tray of little squares, now filled with water, into the freezer for exactly 12 1/2 hours. Make sure you use a timer! Too little time, or too much time will completely RUIN THE WHOLE THING.
  6. When time is up, gently remove frozen blocks from tray of little squares and put into drinking glasses. Be careful, they’re cold!
  7. Gently wrap decorative twine around drinking glass, and finish with a cute bow.
  8. Pour beverage over frozen blocks, and enjoy!

———-APRIL FOOLS!!———-
You didn’t think this was serious, right?? Good. I know you guys are too smart to fall for my crap. This is probably one of my favorite days of the year, because I loooove pulling pranks on people.

As you’ve noticed, I’ve been pretty absent on here. My last post, was from last year! Well, a lot of good things have been happening, but unfortunately, those good things cost money; “blogging” comes way after “pay bills,” and “save up for wedding,” on my to-do list. Not to mention our current apartment sucks as far as any kind of quality photo studio. The lighting comes in at weird angles all times of the day… and unless I want to move my couch and set up a table, every time I want to take pictures of spaghetti, blogging has just become a real chore.

Oh, did I say wedding? Yep, Mike (I think this is the first time I’ve ever used his name on here,) proposed on February 28th! We spent a fantastic night out, ate the most deeelicious dinner at Osteria Mozza, and when we got home, he surprised me! So we’ve been eating mainly pasta/rice/ramen and chicken for the past few months to try and set extra money aside for wedding stuffs.

BUT: We’re moving at the end of April, (which, for any of you folks playing along at home, will be the 7th time in six years, that I’ve moved while living in California,) but this will be a good move! Moving will allow us to put even more wedding-money aside, and also, I’ll be able to put “blogging” back at the top of my to-do list. Yay!

Have a great, shenanigan-filled April Fools’ Day, everyone!
