Hey! Summer is here – can you say “Happy Memorial Day?!” – and it is time to start drinking your coffee iced!* But, if you, like me, are not a fan of the ubiquitous “Cold Brew,” then I have the best Life Hack (No. 4) for you today! In the video above, I show you a very complex and highly-skilled trick… how to pour liquid into an ice cube tray. You are welcome… you are SO welcome.
Actually, this video really is a visual reminder to NOT THROW AWAY your extra coffee! Instead: Freeze it! Then, the next time it is 90 degrees outside, and you just made a pot of piping-hot coffee and you are wishing you had time to stop for an iced coffee since there is NO-WAY you are drinking any hot beverage in this weather, you will have your solution! Regular ice cubes turn piping-hot coffee into disgusting tea-colored water. Butttttt….. coffee ice cubes turn piping-hot coffee into delicious iced coffee!
And, as demonstrated in my video, if you like cream or flavored creamer in your coffee, FREEZE IT, TOO! Then you have delicious frozen cream to help cool down your piping-hot coffee.
A few helpful suggestions:
