Flavored Ice Cubes

This idea is similar to the two above. The only difference is ice cubes. Sweetened ice cubes with fruit bits and and herbs, to be exact. Simply place some sliced fruit and fresh herbs in the bottom of your ice cube tray. Freeze the cubes and pop 'em out the next time you make a batch of iced tea! Play around with different combinations to find the best flavor for you.
