As promised! The second installment in my flavored ice-cube series. Check out the first here.

I love when an experiment turns out for the best, and that’s exactly what happened in this case. With the arrival of fresh berries you know that summer has arrived and I wanted a refreshing drink that was sweet, but also let the berries have their time in the limelight. This does the job.
