Thank you to the Brew Over Ice crew for providing supplies that inspired this post on end of summer party ideas. All words and opinions are my own.
While in Chicago at the Sweet Suite event one of the things that took my eye was the iced drinks bar. They had multiple Keurig machines lined up, buckets full of ice, and a number of Brew Over Ice beverages from which to choose. I loved the look of it so much that I decided to recreate my own little brewing station to combat the heat we’ve been experiencing the last few days.
A Brew Over Ice drink station would be a great addition to any summer or fall party. Backyard BBQs, pool parties, bridal or baby showers, or just to celebrate the start of a new school year. Who wouldn’t love to create their own perfect blend of iced coffee, iced tea, or lemonade, to name a few?
Iced Drinks Station
- Keurig Brewing Machine (more than one if you have access)
- Brew Over Ice K-Cups: Iced Coffee, Iced Tea, Lemonade, or Vitamin Burst, in multiple flavors
- Sturdy plastic or metal cups (do not use glass containers)
- Lots of ice
- Ice Bucket and Tongs
- Drink mix-ins and toppings: whipped cream, chocolate sauce, cinnamon, caramel sauce, etc.
- Sweet treats: Candy, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, truffles, macaroons, etc.
Once your station is set up your work is done. People can stop by, make their own custom drink, and have a little snack. You just fill your cup with ice and place it under the brewer. Pop in your choice of K-Cup and select the 6- or 8-oz button for best results. Wait a few seconds and you’ll have a nice, cool drink on a hot day.
I’ve always loved using my Keurig machine at parties and gatherings. It lets me give people a lot of drink options without having to brew multiple batches of beverages that will just go to waste. Now with Brew Over Ice blends, I can offer my guests even more from which to choose.
