genius!

This isn't so much a recipe but a trick that is so obvious I feel silly I didn't think of it a long time ago. Ice cubes made out of coffee! You no longer have to deal with the painful last sips of a watery iced coffee. It's so simple I'm not leaving you with a recipe but I do have TONS of improv suggestions!

improv style:
consider making the ice cubes out of your favorite coffee additives (think creamer, almond milk, flavored milk, soy, boozy laced ice - baileys anyone?!). i like my coffee black which is why i just freeze extra coffee when i have it but the combinations are endless! 

why use the ice in just iced coffee? i've been blending them up with peanut butter + chocolate green smoothies. consider serving your adult beverages with iced coffee ice… hello fancy/delicious/awesome white russian!

not a coffee drinker? this principle applies to your favorite iced beverages. i mostly drink tea… why not freeze up some iced tea to keep your beverage from diluting?! or, if you're making iced tea, freeze some lemonade or fruit puree so as it melts, your beverage takes on new flavors! the possibilities are endless. 

this is a fun idea for every day but an even more impressive idea for your next party. what's your favorite improv combo of "fancy ice"?!
