This recipe is for anyone who still has fruit ice cubes left. I stumbled on this to be honest. I was enjoying a nice relaxing evening with The Hero after having some of the best deep-dish pizza in town and wanted a drink. I wasn’t in the mood for the usual ‘on the rocks’ concoction. I was feeling more in a mixed drink mood. We still have loads of liquor left from The Hero’s birthday and are slowly working our way through it.
I wanted to see how a mixed drink with the fruit ice cubes would taste, especially as the cubes melted. It was a hit. So much so that I made myself another one the next morning. You know… just to test it before I posted the recipe for you wonderful readers.
- 2 shots (2 ounces) vodka (I used Tanqueray Sterling)
- 2 ounces simple syrup
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- 2 fruit ice cubes
Add the vodka, simple syrup and lemon juice to a small glass. Stir and add the ice cubes. Enjoy.
