But here's where I go on my Jerry Seinfeld-style rant. Have you ever noticed that iced coffee costs more than hot coffee, but you get less of it? And if you try to savor it and make it last at all, the ice melts, and leaves it watery and unappetizing. What's up with that?
Recently, as I disappointedly poked my straw between cubes in order to slurp up the last remaining droplets of precious coffee, I had an epiphany the likes of which a person can only expect a few times in one's lifetime. And it was this: What if the ice cubes were made out of coffee? I know- it sends chills up your spine, right? Your drink would never get watery, and when the ice melted, you would just have MORE iced coffee. (Note to Starbucks: I am available for a high-paying consulting job.) Simply make yourself a double batch of coffee, mix it up just how you like it (with the soy milk and the Splenda, and whatnot), and then pour half of it into an ice tray and freeze it for tomorrow.
Furthermore, this idea is applicable to other beverages as well! Imagine: Arnold Palmer cubes. Or olive juice cubes that make your dirty martini dirtier as the night wears on. The possibilities are limitless.
Obviously, I've already had my coffee this morning.
