Keep Pitcher Drinks Properly Chilled With Muffin Tin Ice Cubes

Using muffin tins to freeze ice cubes is perfect for making a ton of ice at once or freezing whole lemon slices for a citrus boost, but it’s also a great way to make ice cubes that are the ideal size for keeping pitchers and punch bowls chilled.

Since a muffin tin makes larger ice cubes than a normal tray, you need less cubes to keep your batch drinks at a refreshingly cool temperature. Muffin tin cubes also melt more slowly which means you spend less time having to add more ice to pitchers and they dilute drinks less than normal ice cubes. If you have a big party coming up, make batches of these cubes ahead of time and store them in ziplock bags so they stay fresh and you have plenty to last your whole party.
