Rock your "on the rocks" with rainbow COLORS!
The home bar. It might be a bar-height counter-top or just a card table put up for the eve, but it's a kinda necessary consideration for a party.
Whether you're serving sassy spirits or sparkling sodas, most home bars are kinda, well, lame. Bottles. Glasses. Ice. Pretty standard stuff.Unless ...y
ou have Rainbow Ice Cubes!
Now there's an untapped party op for braggin' rights!
This idea opens up a whole world of possibilities, like...
Christmassy red and green.
Or maybe you've got a special occasion on the horizon?
You can keep track of glasses by cube color -- purple for Kate, lime green for Sandra, and of course you save hot pink for moi -- and you'll always know which drink is whose.
But best of all is the big bowl of colorful cubes just waiting for your guests to pluck the colors they want.
These are fun served with light-colored beverages like Sprite, club soda, sparkling water, sparkling white grape juice, or even champagne.
If you're serving kids, they probably won't mind their colors melting together in a muddy mix in their soda, but your adult guests may wish to stick to a single color per glass!
So, how do ya make 'em?
Easy and cheap, that's how.
Just use a two-cup measuring pitcher filled with water, and add one drop of food color at a time until you get the color you're after, swishing with a spoon after each. You can get creative by mixing colors, too -- there's a guide on the back of the food coloring box so you can make all kinds of crazy hues to match any special event!
Do one color at a time and pour it into a plastic, divided ice cube tray. I bought these trays for $1.48 a pair, so I'm keeping a bunch of 'em handy just for this purpose!
Mix your trays, or keep them all one color. It doesn't matter. Is this the most flex party idea, or what? Make a dozen or make a million -- it's just water and food color, so you can go color crazy for practically FREE! Then thank Mother Nature for the inspiration.
Go ahead -- make these for your holiday party and have a ball!
We know you're as coo-coo for rainbows as we are here at Tablespoon, so we've got a bunch more colorific stuff for you to try this holiday season!
