Bitters are basically the spices of the cocktail world, and just a few dashes or drops can round out a drink or give it a bit of depth. Dashing them right into the glass is fine (obviously), but by freezing some of the gentian-infused liquid into a big ol' cube, you get a drink that gets a little more special as you drink it.

Putting cubes of frozen coffee in your iced coffee -- instead of boring water -- isn't exactly a new coffee "hack", but there are ways to make them a little more interesting.

Alcoholic popsicles are a great concept but, thanks to ethanol's low freezing point, it's not as simple as throwing some booze into an ice block mould and tossing it in the freezer. But don't let that deter you from making fabulous frozen, boozy treats. All you need to do is pay attention to the ABV.
