Spring is nearly here, lighter evenings are coming and Easter weekend is less than a few weeks away! Whether you’ve planned an extravagant Easter egg hunt or a traditional roast lamb lunch for all the family, The Ice Co is here with all the drinks & ice hacks you need to make this your best bank holiday Sunday yet.
Start your day with some caffeine!
No matter what you’ve got planned, kicking off your morning with a coffee just makes sense doesn’t it? Get into that sweet easter spirit with our Salted Caramel Iced Frappe. This Starbucks dupe is super quick and easy to make, so you’ll still have time to hide those eggs and prep the veg whilst you get your caffeine fix!
Add two handfuls of Party Ice, 25ml of salted caramel syrup, 25ml of coffee syrup, a shot of hot espresso and a cup of milk to a blender and blend until the mixture is thick. Finish by pouring into a cup then garnish with whipped cream & caramel sauce.
A Midday treat for all the family
If you can’t wait until after dinner for your chocolate fix, our Easter freakshakes offer the perfect afternoon treat, with a delicious Crème Egg Freakshake for the kids and a Hot Cross Bun Freakshake for the adults with a sweet tooth!
Grab a couple of rogue Crème Eggs and add them to a blender with a handful of Party Ice, a cup of milk and blend until smooth. Coat the inside of your glass with chocolate sauce before pouring in the milkshake and top generously with whipped cream & chocolate sauce. Finish off by garnishing your freakshake with another Crème Egg and enjoy!
Creating our Easter staple Hot Cross Bun Freakshake is just as easy. Add a cup of milk, a handful of Party Ice and 25ml salted caramel syrup to your blender & blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and salted caramel sauce. Finish by adding the star of the show on top, a sweet hot cross bun.
An icy cooking hack!
If you’ve volunteered to make the roast this year then by now it must almost be done! As we all know, no UK roast is complete without a Yorkshire Pudding and we have a little hack to speed along the process. Adding Party Ice to the batter cools it down quicker so there’s no need to leave it to chill in the fridge, as it’s ready to go in minutes!
A great gravy hack is using the leftover juices from the meat for a richer and more flavourful taste, but often this means adding a lot unnecessary fat to your dish. Simply drop a couple of ice cubes into your gravy and any excess fat will cling onto the ice cube for an easy removal without any mess!
