Let’s face it — recipes are complicated. Between baking, rolling, pressing, beating or just plain slicing, some recipes call for more elbow grease than ingredients. Thankfully, we found these simple strawberry ice cubes on Pinterest courtesy of Joy the Baker.

Not only are they perfect for those end-of-summer barbecues, but these cubes take all of the prep out of party planning. Simply add mashed strawberries to ice cube trays, cover with water and try to wait patiently as these drink enhancers take shape. They’re the perfect addition to any cocktail, plus they add some colorful flair to plain ‘ole ice cubes!
