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.)
- 2 cups of hot water
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 ice tray
Pour two cups of hot water in a bowl. You can microwave, boil, or run from sink.
Add one cup of sugar.
Stir until dissolved.
Pour sweetened water into ice cube trays. Freeze.
This is how the sweetened water looks when frozen (on left). Just put one into your cold drink to sweeten it. You can still add regular ice if you are like me and love a full glass of ice. It works perfectly!
