Flavored Ice Cubes. For a Passion Fruit & Basil Cube, Mix juice with chopped fresh basil cube. Serve with seltzer for the non-alcohol-drinkers. A Ginger & Honey cube, made with equal parts water, honey, and grated ginger, complements a vodka tonic. I also like the look of an oversize, irregular chunk of ice. Just freeze water in a loaf pan and use an ice pick to break off pieces.
