Have you ever tried to sweetened a cold drink, like tea? Impossible.  It’s always best to sweeten any drink before it is chilled.  It makes life so much easier.  Here is a little tip to help sweeten a drink that is already cold.  Just make ice cubes that are really, really sweet.  Pop them into your cold drink and let the sweet melt into it.  Love it!  (This little trick works great for the times when you make iced-tea.)

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea 🙂

  2. Wow this really is a great idea. I always want to try to make my own iced tea rather than buying the Crystal Light but I suck (frankly) at sweetening things. 🙂 I have to try this when I get home tonight.
