Beverage Brunch Bunny Ice Cubes

Wilton Bunny Juice Ice CubesAre you inviting these cute bunnies to brunch this Easter?  You might put them on the invite list because they are so easy to make ahead of time out of any juice or drink mix.  I made the bunnies below out of regular lemonade, pink lemonade and OJ.

I used the 24 Cavity Bunny Silicone Mold by Wilton Cake Decorating which would be also perfect to make cute little bunny petite fours for a sweet bite afterwards.

How easy is this? Pour & fill.

Freeze (brrrr) & unmold.  The soft texture of the mold means the bunny ice cubes pop right out.

Store individual bunnies on a flat baking tray with a layer of waxed paper between “flavors” so the colors don’t touch each other.

The lemonade ice cubes would also be great to add to iced tea or to slightly sweeten and flavor water.  Screwdrivers?  Yes please! OJ ice cubes will be ready!  How about making Bloody Mary mix or Margarita mix ice cubes?  Use the mix either diluted or full strength because if you mix it will alcohol the bunnies cubes won’t freeze well.

Beverage brunch bunnies will be a whimsical addition to your place setting presentations.  I’ve got mine made.  How about you?

Salude! & Happy Easter!

The Best-Ever Chocolate Malts

What’s your favorite childhood summertime memory? Mine was of nights spent on our street playing kickball, roller skating, playing handball against the side of the house and riding our bikes. We’d sing “Leader of The Pack” as we imagined our bikes turning into motorcycles- “Vroom, vroom, vroom!” One by one we’d hear our respective moms calling our names from the front porch and we knew it was time to come in. I don’t think moms do this anymore. It would… [Read More]

Pour the whiskey into a well-frosted silver cup, throw the other ingredients away and drink the whiskey.” Or… Mint Julep Recipe: 1.Freeze your glass or metal mug well… [Read More]
