Here's a delicious (and pretty) way to serve drinks at your next party: Striped ice cubes in different flavors, each a cocktail in its own right! These ice cubes are made in various flavors; one is Campari-centric, one plays on Galliano, and another is alcoholic. They are strong enough to create a drink; just plunk one into some soda water or bubbly Prosecco and let it dissolve to create an ever-shifting and always delicious sipper.
This is a smart time-saver, too, as it helps you to offer different drinks without actually being on standby to play mixologist. Plus, it gives you an excuse to by one of those vintage ice buckets that lurk on Craigslist. Guests can choose their personal favorites from your offered flavors and just top off their glass. Pretty!
