It seems that all drinks are served here without ice. In fact, in any store I've looked, it's not even easy to find ice trays for the freezer. They are available occasionally (like everything else) at the bargain store, and I bought a couple, but, I really didn't use them that much, so the ice ended up evaporating.
To be honest, until this summer, there was never any weather
warm enough to require ice in a drink since I've been here.
So, on a whim, I picked up some Glad brand ice cube bags. It was mostly out of curiosity, and it seemed like an
interesting experiment, even if Hubby did chuckle at me for
Come to find out, they are absolutely wonderful for the sun tea I make now and then. I'm not usually impressed with 'stuff' but these things are very convenient since you don't even have to lay them flat in the freezer for them to form cubes. And, then, to get the cubes out of the package, they easily squeeze out through the perforations, so you can use as many or few as you want without much fuss at all. I just use three or four for a glass and they throw them back into the freezer drawer until the next time.
It sure is a long way from those metal trays with the lever. Remember them?!
