We spent a lot of time in our backyard this weekend, enjoying the outdoors and conjuring up ideas to renovate it. We’re going DIY style, so I think I’ll document the process! Anyway, while we were sipping some yummy cocktails and playing a game of cornhole, I felt a tickle on my ankle. I looked down and there was a bumble bee crawling on me! At the time I kind of freaked, but then quickly reminded myself that I’m not afraid of bees! I’m actually quite fond of them and the fact that they provide us with honey, which is a nutrient-packed sweetener I use often. I was inspired to make a board of beautiful products for entertaining, with bumble bees on my mind. I also wanted to share a very simple way to make honey ice cubes. They add just a touch of sweetness to iced or hot tea. I’m a year-round tea drinker… iced in the summer, hot during fall/winter and I use ice in both!
Honey Ice Cubes
2 cups warm water
2-3 tablespoons honey
Stir until the honey is melted, then pour into ice trays and freeze.
