Here is a super silly but fun idea for a Halloween party: Garnish guest's drinks with critter cubes! These are ice cubes that look like they have little green bugs in them. These are a quirky surprise to add to sodas or cocktails. Here's how to make your own:
The critters are made from green olives with rosemary "legs." Use a toothpick to poke three holes along each side of an olive. Then insert a rosemary sprig into each hole. Place the olive bug in an ice cube tray, fill with water and freeze overnight.
As the ice melts you will start to have hints of olive and rosemary flavors in your beverages. This is excellent for martinis. But maybe not the best for, say, Dr. Pepper. Just FYI. xo. Emma
