Bonjour to all!  Its Ruby Tuesday!  If you want to join you can click here.  The hostess of this fun blog hop is Maryt.  Its a fun way of meeting new people and discovering new blogs.  I'm also joining Sue for Rednesday. Be sure to visit here to link up on Wednesday!

In the summer I love cold refreshing drinks.  I'm thinking margaritas, spritzer, sangria....  If you want a fun idea to dress up your drink just add a few berries in the ice cube tray and VOILA!  Everybody will tell you how good it looks and its zero calorie.  Its so simple!  Trust me,  you will get a lot of positive feedback from your guests.

This week I'm also linking up with

  1. What a cute idea. I have added lemon slices to ice cubes but I never thought about berries, I will give it a try.

  2. Lovely place and I love shoes special red ones. The ice cube looks so good. I must try it! Thanks for following me. I took a cup of coffee instead of tea. I´m a follower now.

  3. Oh it does look good. I am going to have to try that. I am thinking that a small wedge of lime would look pretty too.

  4. Oops I forgot to say I am following you now. Your blog looks like a nice place to visit.

  5. THAT is one amazing idea!! I'm definitely gonna use it too.

  31. Oh, Anne-Marie, I LOVE this idea. It is both simple and beautiful!!!
    Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

  32. Strawberries are Narelle's favorite fruit, bar none. Too bad it is either seasonal (local farms) or costly but sour (imported) ;-(

  33. Following from Social Parade on GFC!

  34. I've always loved this idea, and I can't believe that I've never actually done it! I bet the drinks don't get watered down so much once the ice melts if you do this. I have to try it!
    Happy REDnesday!

  35. Pretty strawberry ice cube!
    Happy REDnesday~

  36. What a cute little trinket box with the ruby slippers! I was just reading about an online Oz Gala, I think for August.
    And as I am reading this, I happen to be eating a strawberry. Will have to go slip some others into the ice cube tray.

  37. What an amazing idea! Following back from The Social Parade!

    Have a great week!

  43. Fabulous idea! So simple! I love the picket fence tablecloth in your Provence post, too!

  44. When we were kids, we used to visit our grandparents' next-door neighbors, a proper old Southern couple, Colonel and Boo. We were always delighted when Boo would serve our soft drinks in fancy glasses... with fake ice cubes... with flies in the middle.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for following. I believe I just might reciprocate.
