Ingredients

  • 2-3  Cups  water
  • Ice cube tray

Directions

Fill each crevice of the ice cube tray completely so that the water reaches up over the edges and connects. Place the tray in the freezer and leave until frozen, about 2-4 hours. To break the ice from the tray, hold the tray with your hands on each end and the ice cubes facing the ice cube bucket. Twist your hands in opposite directions so that the ice cubes break apart from eachother and crack out of the track and into the bucket. Serve immediately.

Ube Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ube Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
